Whether just stepping foot on the Hollywood Walk of Fame in the pursuit of dreams or a veteran television executive looking to hit the refresh button, the Entertainment Power Players career directory is a resource that transcends fashion, film/TV, music, sports and video gaming. In it's 5th edition, publisher Dackeyia Q. Sterling condensed over 5,000 industry contacts that include training programs, award ceremonies, career tools and even legal services for an easy-to-use guide of information.

The Entertainment Power Players, affectionately dubbed EPP, has a plethora of detailed contacts, broken down by industry in a distinctive color coded format to keep viewers glued to their discipline of choice. The Fashion section is organized by interest, whether it be accessories, denim, footwear or even modeling agencies. This edition spotlights Helen Sckalor, Senior Manager of Learning & Development for Saks Fith Avenue's Executive Excellence Program.

The film and television section reigns supreme with 125 pages of detailed information which includes pitching ideas, film financing, screenwriting competitions and even animation companies. Academy award-winning actress Taraji P. Henson is featured, along with the Power Player Advice section that includes insight from industry veterans such as Melissa Houghton, of Women in Film & Video and powerhouse entertainment attorney Darrell Miller. The Film/TV section covers all areas of the industry that can benefit any level of career trajectory.

If there's an interest in video gaming or sports, EPP may not be the best guide as information is a bit sparse in these categories. However, the directory redeems in the lacking areas with a bonus Entertainment Career Center chapter that gives explicit details of Do's & Don'ts of the Industry, along with job resources, internships and staffing agencies. The Entertainment Power Players career directory is a definite go-to guide for what the entertainment industry has to offer. Readers will be overwhelmed by the wealth of information, so focus and clear objective is needed when tackling this 270+ page reference book.
