LAMN members and non-members can take advantage of Career Strategy Sessions to create a Personal Marketing Plan. Meet with Tess Taylor to discuss your experience and goals, and then formulate a realistic plan to help you achieve them. If appropriate, we refer you to professionals who are doing the things you want to do. These custom introductions help leap-frog you over obstacles in your job hunt or artistic quest and get you in the door. We offer this service to members at a special rate.

Here’s what people say about Tess Taylor and her Career Strategy Sessions:

“Tess is a juggernaut. She is a tireless and relentless advocate for professionals in the music industry, but more notably, is a mentor for the young and up-and-coming leaders of tomorrow. Who she doesn’t know in the music industry is just not worth knowing!” Peter Jansson, President, CEO, Janssongs Consultants

“Tess’s services were invaluable in helping me land my last two music industry jobs. First, she finds out exactly who you are and what you want to do with your career. She then gives you solid advice on how to achieve your goals. Finally, and this is the kicker, she opens up her Rolodex and helps you think of effective ways to get in front of people who can have a real impact on your career. If it really is about who you know in the music business, then Tess Taylor is an excellent person to cultivate.” – J. Michael Ribas, Senior Director of Marketing, Shout! Factory.

“Networking is statistically proven to be the best way to get into the career-oriented job you want, and Tess’s network works. Since I joined in 2002, I’ve gotten every job I’ve had through NARIP and LAMN. From Director or A&R at a record label to my current position working with Spencer Proffer and Doc McGhee developing music, film, TV and other media properties, the opportunities I’ve gotten through Tess are not the kinds of things you’ll find in the classified ads, unless it’s the NARIP.com or LAMN.com classified ads. Just join and participate. Learn the system and work the system, it worked for me.” – Kerry Furlong, McGhee-Proffer Media

“After an hour of speaking with Tess, she inspired and focused me on the direction I want my career to take. We discussed short term and long term goals, and then developed a strategy to get there. Within a week she arranged for me to call a top industry executive to ask for more advice. She listened aggressively and objectively to my career goals, saw what I’m trying to achieve, and then helped me develop a step-by-step approach to achieve those goals. Another aspect of the counseling that I enjoyed was that my ideas were vague and undeveloped. Tess helped to define those ideas and make a clearer picture that I could work toward. This has helped me feel more confident about moving forward.” – Peter O’Brien, World Group Consulting Inc.
