I worked at International Creative Management full-time (More than a year)
Work with one of the top literary and talent agencies in the world to connect representation with A-List producers, directors, writers, actors and studio executives. There is no better "Hollywood Grad School" than this position!
You're there to represent ICM, the agent for whom you work, and the clients for whom that agent represents. That means the possibility of getting thrown under the bus so that your boss saves face, or the possibility of working 12-hour days before spending your weekends toiling over scripts. Not to mention: keeping your personal and professional life from being a squeaky wheel; ICM is an extremely private business, where selfies, gossip and inability to keep up with the ever-mounting responsibilities placed on your desk can lead to your unemployment.
Advice to Management
I respect the hard work you have to accomplish on a daily, hourly, and even minutely basis... but give those assistants at least a handshake every once in a while. After witnessing assistants sustain ulcers, panic attacks and severe depression... I can promise you, they're doing their best.
I applied through an employee referral. The process took a week. I interviewed at International Creative Management (Los Angeles, CA) in September 2015.
I interviewed for two separate executive assistant positions. The first interview was with a member of HR. It was pleasant and painful, but became pretty clear that they had already found someone for the position. I then got the chance to interview for a separate assistant position and that was a very negative experience. There were two people that talked with me, the first was polite and kind, the second was horrendous. He admitted that he hadn't even looked at my resume and told me that I was not qualified for the position. I came well prepared with extra resumes and a notepad which he laughed at and called "cute." Keep in mind that this position was basically getting coffee and lunch for an executive. He insisted that I didn't have enough industry experience and asked me how I had managed to get the interview. I realize that I was new and unfamiliar with how this industry worked, but the lack of professionalism and entitlement was very off-putting.
