Ultimate Lessons of the UTA List: 5.03
Since I wrote a little post about the infamous UTA joblist, I've gotten some interesting critiques of the industry's most exclusive compilation of employment.
Seriously. A lot of them.
Generally, they fall into two camps: one believes the list sucks and isn't worth the effort to obtain it, while the other swears by its mystical powers.
Ultimately, here's the lesson I've derived from this debate: work every angle.
Whether it's a relative, an internship, or a near-mythic list, try it.
The stars just might align for you. Or your talent and hard work can see you through. Just kidding. It's luck, nepotism or a lot of bjs.
Fortunately, once you're in, you can just do what I did and hang around in one place long enough until you everyone else leaves and you get promoted.
Speaking of, I think I may get promoted again. And seriously, if I get one more promotion, I may be headed definitively out of assistant land. Wait, is that a light at the end of the tunnel. . . Wait, nope.
It's an oncoming train of endless corporate meetings.
