Heading west or Newly arrived to L.A.? looking for some advice on connecting in Los Angeles?
The Tisch Offices of Career Development and Alumni Relations have collaborated to create this mentorship program to facilitate your transition to the West Coast! Designed for recent graduates and newly-arriving alumni, this program places participants in small support groups led by industry members, to help them begin their personal and professional transition to Los Angeles.
These groups are designed to facilitate conversation about experiences adjusting to L.A. Topics will cover logistics (apartment hunting, car shopping, etc.) as well as acclimating to the world of work and local lifestyle. Each group will work together to get you settled, offering advice and guidance as you seek out your goals in Hollywood, as well as helping you plan and assess short- and long-term career goals. This is not an internship or job placement program. Each mentee will be expected to work actively with their mentors and fellow mentees toward their specific and personal pursuits.
