Susan and The Career Center at The Actors Fund

July 7, 2016 | Services & ProgramsClient Stories

Susan is a writer in Los Angeles who found support and inspiration from The Career Center at The Actors Fund.

A writer in the entertainment industry, Susan came to The Actors Fund for help searching for work that would help her make ends meet. She utilized the many facets of our Career Center services in Los Angeles, including the orientation, seminars, Job Clubs, and Valley Days which regularly bring Fund seminars and services to clients at our Burbank office. Her eyes were opened to the many ways she could develop her writing skills to create a business.

“I felt wisely supported and in great company with others who were going through versions of what I was experiencing.”

Today she’s transformed her passion project into a career she loves as a writer and tour guide specializing in Italian travel for women. “I’m forever grateful to The Actors Fund for helping me find a prosperous working life I could never have imagined.”

“The work continues joyfully and I’m grateful for the resources and inspirational Valley Days, where I always learn something new and enjoy meeting new people. All of us feel strengthened by The Actors Fund’s support, and fueled up to get out there and take actions to fulfill our dreams. Grazie mille! Thank you!”
