Looking for a Media job in LA? An alum steps up to help...

This just in from an alum:

ASST MEDIA BUYER /ABACUS MEDIA/SANTA MONICA: Entry level job- learn media business. BA degree, PC prof, Good phone skills, Detail oriented, Web knowledge a plus. E-mail resume:
The additional info I can give you:
Abacus Media/Castalian Music does DR music advertising. We DO NOT have a company website (we try to avoid branding ourselves to expand our business opportunity) but the type of product we handle can be seen on our store webpage, Our best known product is the Now That's What I Call Music series. We're actually owned by EMI Music North America, but we operate independently of them. The good thing about being owned by a larger corporation is that we have health benefits that start after being employed for a full month (rare in the industry) as well as 401k matching (i think they just changed it to 50% match, but still pretty good). Whoever gets hired will be working for Andrea, who is the Vice President and head of the Santa Monica office (we also have an office in Colorado Springs, CO, where our fulfillment center is). Andrea is super-nice and really great to work with. Our office is on Ocean Avenue (I have a view of the ocean from my desk) although we will be moving this summer (staying in West LA). It's a small company feel but with the larger company benefits, which is the best of both worlds.
