I have been applying for TV writing and TV production internships since my freshman year of college and in 3 years I hadn't had much success with larger companies and networks, despite being qualified.
worked tirelessly with me to make sure that my resume demonstrated my skills and experience in a way that was easy and enticing to read, and that showed employers why I'd be an asset to their team.
took my typical, generic, and bland cover letter and helped me turn it around and make it personal, unique, entertaining, and impressive.

is passionately committed to getting you the best internship or job that you can get.
Thanks to Marci
