Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 963: How do I get a job as a PA?
There are different ways to get a job as a PA. The best way is always through other people. Let everyone you know in the industry or connected to the industry, know that you want to work as a set PA.
Another way, is to send cold resumes to productions in prep. It's one of the only positions where people take chances on people they don't know, if their resume is strong.
If you don't have a strong resume, do free PA work on short films, web series, and indie films to build your resume and relationships.
