How to get started as a PA

Just starting out in the industry and I am looking for advice on how to get office PA, Producer PA or Writer's Assistant jobs. I know you start off in the office and move up to the other two after gaining enough experience. But how did you get your start?

My suggestion is sent out a query e-mail to the Directors Guild of America or the Producers Guild of America. Since I am a screenwriter most of the books I have are on my craft. However , There is one book that might help: 'BANKROLL' --How to finance your Independent film by Tom Malloy. Even though the title suggests something else there are a lot of books he lists in the back that could help. We have spoken and shared content before. Once I get my (3) copyrighted screenplays into funding and production You are not that far from NYC and you are still in New York so well you never know. Maybe you can be a PA for my company CITY & SUBURBAN MOTION PICTURES,. But first thing first. Let's get you some tools and info so you know exactly what a PA does. Than when you do you can tell me. Because I only started on this journey 2 years ago at Age 62. So that's all for now. Hope this was of some help.
