HOW DOES AN ACTOR KEEP THE RESUME FRESH?
For this week’s question, we turned to co-owner Becca McCracken, former casting director for over a decade, who is passionate about keeping students book-it ready!
"Resumes are often your best shot at getting your foot in the door with an agent or casting director. If your resume is disorganized or lacks professionalism, then it reflects on your level of professionalism in the business. Getting specific on common mistakes is tricky as there are so many variables, but we recommend doing your best to be a pro - don't try to stand out with colors or pictures or creative fonts as it says that you are using that to get attention instead of your rockstar credits and training! If you haven't had an industry pro (agent, cd, coach) look over your resume and give you feedback, we highly suggest it! Ask someone to review who looks at resumes for a living!
