Senior seeking advice from alumni in media and Los Angeles

I’m a senior majoring in English and Film, Television, and Interactive Media looking for career advice. I’ve been considering moving to L.A. after I graduate to work in the film industry. At Brandeis I’ve focused on expanding my network and developing my technical skills with cameras, editing, etc., but I’m unsure about what the next step would be to work in media production. A long-term goal would be to become a screenwriter, but I’m unsure of how to start on that path—I would love to learn how one starts out in a TV writer’s room. Any advice from people based in the area working in a media industry would be extremely welcome.
