The course is invaluable to those looking to break into the field and Kate's fun, friendly attitude is what makes the course so enjoyable.

"This is quite possibly the best investment that you can make! Kate’s course gave me the exact tools that I needed to revamp my resume, tweak my cover letter, and how to network appropriately in this industry. I can’t thank her enough as I continue my career transition. My favorite part of the course was Kate’s insight on all the industry organizations that I can join immediately. I was blown away by all her insider info! There’s so much more I can delve into, but to sum it up, this course is definitely worth the investment!! I am feeling much more confident in my job hunting process. Thank you, Kate!"
"Kate Lupo's course curriculum is 100% worth the investment for anyone who wants to break into the industry, especially recent college graduates. I'm a film school graduate, and film school does not teach you the inner workings of Hollywood business or the job market. Kate gives a big picture perspective on working in the entertainment industry and Hollywood culture itself. My favorite parts of the course has to be the cover letter and interview modules, as they both help you pitch and present yourself in a success light to excite executives and potentially land the job you want. I wish I would've met Kate 5 years ago, as I currently live in Los Angeles and am still trying to go after my dream job. You define success by not what you gain but how you help others, and Kate is a prime example. She's smart, thoughtful, honest, and the "real deal."

"As a recruiter focusing on hiring for a leading entertainment, media, and sports agency, I can always trust that Kate’s referrals are high caliber talent, as I’ve hired a few previously under her tutelage, who are now thriving at the company...Kate is truly the embodiment of what it means to be a successful, “fast riser” in the world of entertainment. ”

"Kate was able to very kindly, but firmly give me the advice I needed to change my interview language to sound confident and competent. She also encouraged me to use my existing network to find an "in" in Hollywood as that is pretty much the only way to get a job in this town. It's all about who you know. Literally within only a few weeks of working with Kate, I used my existing network, and LANDED every single job I applied for. I'm not exaggerating. It was amazing! And throughout the process, Kate would check in with me to see how I was doing, which I really appreciated. I now work for a producer of a major TV show on Amazon and couldn't be happier! I am so grateful to Kate for all her advice and help in my job hunt!"
Assistant to Producer, Amazon TV
"During my last semester of college, Kate guided me through all the steps to become a viable candidate in the industry and land the job I wanted. First, Kate turned my resume from one belonging to a teenager to one belonging to a professional, and I am so excited to now show it off! The night before my interview with WME, Kate and I spoke on the phone for an hour to prepare and review potential questions and answers, and the next day I landed the job! Kate has an unbelievable drive to help and sincerely cares about everyone she works with. I would highly recommend Kate to anyone looking for help with their resumes or for career advice. I am so grateful to you Kate. Thank you so much!”
