Agent Training Program
United Talent Agency hires qualified applicants for its Agent Training Program on an ongoing basis. Please review the following information before contacting us.
UTA's Agent Training Program is among the industry's best known and most sought-after programs for qualified men and women seeking to enter one of the most exciting and demanding, areas of the entertainment industry. Trainees are exposed to a wide spectrum of talent agency business practices and are given hands-on training necessary to become successful agents in all areas of entertainment. UTA is known for its collegial, team-oriented work environment where trainees may excel through hard work and determination. In turn, they are rewarded with an unparalleled opportunity to succeed.
Those who complete the program, may, at the sole discretion of the agency, be promoted to agent status where they will continue to be guided by senior management to help represent UTA's illustrious client list, which includes many of Hollywood's leading actors, directors, writers, producers, recording artists, and below the line clients, as well as some of the world's largest and most recognizable corporations and brand names.
All trainees begin their agency experience working in the UTA Mailroom. During this initial phase, trainees learn the fundamentals of the agency business and undertake hands-on training sessions to gain the tools necessary to operate on an agent's desk. As trainees progress, they may cover agents' desks in various departments on a temporary basis to gain a better understanding of the functions of the different departments prior to being promoted to full-time assistant.
As a full-time assistant, trainees work exclusively to support their assigned agent in conducting the business of the agency. Trainees perform basic administrative tasks and are exposed to client service procedures. Trainees in the UTA Agent Training Program are re-assigned to different agents on a regular basis. Over the course of the program, a trainee will typically work with agents of all levels including covering agents, partners and board members before being considered for promotion.
Agent Training Program applicants must have a four-year degree from an accredited college or university to be considered. Trainees may also have been in the workplace previously or have earned business, law and other graduate degrees before applying to the program.
Limited Internship opportunities are available for students who are currently enrolled in a university program and choose to work in the summer or around their course load.
