CAREER/NETWORKING

• Defining Your Own Success - This blog article is about having confidence in our own paths and journeys. Many of the mentees I chat with have concerns about how their paths don't mirror others.   http://monicaedits.tumblr.com/post/41176080574/defining-your-own-success

• The Socially Awkward Introvert's Guide to Networking with Industry Experts (article also available as an Optimize Yourself Podcast Episode). Great article written by Zack Arnold, ACE   https://optimizeyourself.me/networking-with-industry-experts/


BOOKS / OTHER RESOUCES

• I would add Lori Jane Coleman and Diana Friedberg’s book, Make the Cut. It tells you EVERYTHING you need to know about assisting in scripted.   https://www.amazon.com/Make-Cut-Becoming-Successful-Assistant/dp/0240813987

• And Troy Takaki’s book is more about politics and what is expected work ethic wise. His section on what to do/say in an interview is super helpful.   https://www.amazon.com/Dont-Miss-Out-Avocado-Milkshakes/dp/1365412474/ref=mp_s_a_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1524639990&sr=8-1&pi=AC_SX236_SY340_QL65&keywords=troy+takaki
