During her campaign, Nithya Raman refused to provide her work history or resume to reporters. When some went looking for it on their own, they discovered a good deal of Raman's social media posts were gone—as was her LinkedIn page.

Ultimately, the Los Feliz Ledger published that since Raman moved to Los Angeles in 2013, she has held four jobs, nearly all for a year or less, including a brief stint with the city of Los Angeles; another brief stint with the entertainment division of Time's Up (now called Time's Up Now); ownership of a hosiery business for diabetics and finally co-founder of SELAH, a neighborhood group working to help the homeless.
