Acting, modelling, performing in general—these professions involve a lot of continuous job searching in a way many other jobs don’t. It’s one of the big challenges behind being a performer, and it can be demoralizing to go too long without Finding any gigs. But as technology advances, there are new options for streamlining the search and finding those dream jobs.
Here’s how to use AgencyProTalent to advance your career as we head into the new year!
Traditionally, Finding Casting Calls and open auditions requires either A: browsing classifieds and combing a dozen websites, or B: waiting for your agent to call. While option A is not the most fun, it does exemplify the kind of rigorous work ethic required to succeed in the performing arts. And while an agent comes with tons of benefits, it is a service you pay for out of your paycheck.
AgencyProTalent.com offers something of a hybrid option. Through your Agencyprotalent Account, you’ll have access of the largest database of castings available online (as well as social Networking tools with hundreds of thousands of Industry professionals, should you be seeking representation).
Using your profile details, AgencyProTalent.com will be able to filter down castings to those that match your profile and your geography. Pick the ones you like, and submit your profile, easy as that.
Although networking probably won’t find you a dream job before Christmas, it can put you in an ideal situation for stable work—which is a dream situation for most performers. Finding agents to represent you is a bit like finding Casting Calls, in that it involves a lot of searching, sending resumes and hoping they are interested.
Finding a Talent Manager is even more difficult, but worthwhile if you are interested in finding a knowledgeable partner for your ascent to greatness. Managers will work with you closely to isolate opportunities and get you into position to climb the ranks into a leading position in the industry.
In either situation, it pays to have a personal connection. The best way to find representation is to be introduced by a mutual acquaintance, or to introduce yourself somehow—something more personal than a mailed resume. Industry events are great for this, so be on the lookout.
In the meantime, this December you can strike up some conversations using AgencyProTalent’s Social Networking features. Introduce yourself with a personal message and find out if anything “clicks”. And with your well-prepared profile, agents will be able to find out more about you as they search for people to “discover.”
You can use your free AgencyProTalent account to get started, but if you really want to kick the job search into high gear, you’ll need access to the Active Talent account features. For a limited time, you can get access to a free trial—email an APT Talent manager at [email protected] or [email protected] to get hooked up with the 7 day free trial promotion. We look forward to hearing from you!
