Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 991:How do you transition into higher positions from working as a PA for a couple years?

The way to transition is to be creating relationships with people along the way, so when you decide the area in which you'd like to move up, you have people who want to work with you and will be willing to move you up.

Make a Contact List: a list of everyone you know in the industry broken down by people's classifications and do an analysis.

How many people do you know in each department? Do you know enough to move up? Do you know people who can introduce you to the people in the department you want to transition to?

Whenever it comes to moving up it always comes back to the quality and quantity of your relationships. So start with the evaluation and then send me any questions that your analysis may bring up.

And good luck!
