Interested in photography, good at cold calling, sales, and speaking to strangers, love working outdoors, great at problem solving, able to work unsupervised?  If so, you’ll should consider a job in the Locations Department starting as a Locations PA.  Learn terminology, protocol, tools of the trade, what it’s like to work as a Locations PA, how to get and keep a job, what people hiring look for in a Locations PA, and the disposition needed to work as an Locations PA and eventually join the ranks of Georgia's Locations Managers and Scouts!
