"Jessica Sitomer's book reminds me of the old adage: 'Give a man a fish and he'll eat for a day. Teach him to fish and he'll eat for a lifetime.' There is no shortage of books on bookshelves in bookstores offering up the Hollywood hopeful a fish (or in most cases, something fishy). Sitomer provides a strategy on how to create a career so you will work (and eat!) for a lifetime."

I found the career coaching by Jessica Sitomer to be transformative. If someone had told me that Jessica could help me overcome my insecurity about contacting strangers when looking for work I would have signed up. If someone had told me that Jessica could help me change my failing habits and find new and better ways to network and look for work, I would have signed up. If someone had told me that Jessica could help me focus my energy in production ways, and turn my back on non-productive ways, I would have signed up. No one told me any of these things, but she was there, and accessible and I was looking to make a change, so I focused my energy to doing the work at hand. I got results, because I put in the effort. Since working with Jessica, I have shot a number of films and commercials. I was able to present a more confident and professional image of myself and. I found an agent, then after two years, found another. This past year, I shot three features - in addition to many smaller projects. Through our work together, I gained confidence in presenting myself, and I rediscovered the value of persistence.

When I decided to re-rate from first assistant to operator five years ago, I didn't even know that career coaching or Jessica Sitomer existed. That was a bit of a miracle right there; just that someone somewhere was available and willing to make a priority of me forging my way down this new path. As a direct or indirect result of the program I've done work on CSI: NY, several television pilots, Madmen, and quite a few movies and television shows. Most recently I've just completed a season of CANE for CBS starring Jimmy Smits. I can't say enough about Jessica's coaching program. It's one of the best things I've had happen to me professionally. When I started working with Jessica I was working a couple of days a month....maybe. And then it was several days a month. And a couple of years later I was working every day, which is pretty fortunate I think. Before I started the career coaching program I was sitting around waiting for the phone to ring. After working with Jessica, I was doing what other successful cameramen in Hollywood have always been doing: developing relationships. It was also great to work with other coaching program participants in a group setting and to know that I wasn't alone in being at a crossroads in my career.

Meeting with Jessica helped me to gain a new perspective on the whole entertainment business and to learn how to have more control over options for employment. She emphasized creating possibilities through meeting many, many people and developing relationships with them. Her methods of tracking what actions I took whether it was phone calls, meetings, or interviews were valuable tools in assessing my progress and feeling more in control of accomplishing my goals. Sometimes it was a simple as defining my short range and long range goals. After deciding I wanted to get work as a camera operator on a TV pilot several years ago, she helped me outline what actions I should take. As a result of that organized effort, I worked as an additional camera operator on the pilot of "Boomtown" and was the A camera operator on "What Leonard Comes Home to". Because of her experience with so many camera people at Local 600 and her own work as an actress, writer, director, and producer Jessica always had pertinent information about upcoming projects. She also helped me figure out how to better balance my needs for personal creative projects while working as a camera operator on shows like "Monk" and "Malcolm in the Middle".
