A Great Book About PAing

If you're looking for a great book about what it's like to be a PA, check out "Gofers" by Daniel Scarpati.  Not only is it a realistic account of life as a PA, but he gives awesome tips about how to succeed, grow your career, and enjoy the process.

He's giving the PAs 50% off the eBook, so it's $4.99 plus applicable tax.  If you didn't receive the discount link and code in your PA Verification email, just email us, and we'll send you all the info!

Keys to the Production Office

Lobel map out a career path into the industry by providing comprehensive practical information designed specifically for individuals pursuing the entry level role of the Office PA.  ...An invaluable tool for both breaking into the industry and on the job...as close as you can get to on-the-job training."
