Become an Agent Assistant at Paradigm Talent Agency

Paradigm Talent Agency

According to the post on Publishers Marketplace, Paradigm Talent Agency is seeking a highly motivated and qualified assistant to support an agent in their Book Publishing department. In addition to being organized and efficient, candidates should possess a strong understanding and interest in the entertainment industry and will be expected to thrive in a fast-paced, highly competitive and demanding environment.

This full time position will offer health, dental, and 401K. It lists the location as New York/CA, so I’m not certain exactly where it will be. But with offices in Los Angeles, New York City, London, Monterey, Nashville, San Diego, Berkeley, Austin, Chicago, and Toronto, Paradigm provides representation with a personal and purposeful touch to clients across various areas of entertainment including television, music performances, motion picture, theatre, book publishing, digital, commercial/voiceover, content finance, media rights, brand partnerships and beyond.

Some current author’s represented by Paradigm Talent Agency are Stephen King and Danielle Steele. They also represent famous actors as Adrien Brody, Antonio Banderas, and actress Jada Pinkett Smith.

For qualifications and how to apply, go here. As always, good luck.
