Los Angeles


Los Angeles: The Land of Opportunity

By Justin Rivera

February 2018

The weather is not the only appealing aspect to Los Angeles. It may seem that a large portion of Southern California is home to east coast dropouts, those who could not handle the brisk New York winters. However, even though I have only been here for a month, I have noticed a cultural inclusion; an industry that needs people to work. With the emergence of the digital age, the entertainment industry solidified itself as a business that will never stop changing. You could be on a show for three years and suddenly get laid off when the show is cancelled. Circumstances like these may seem daunting, but the constant modification of the industry allows for work to be constantly available. There is work out there, and employers are eager to hire. It just depends on who you are and if you deserve it. Anybody who is anybody in Hollywood has numerous connections. Of course, work ethic is a vital aspect to the business, but who you know could be an essential deal breaker.
