3 Secrets to Booking Your Next Gig

ClaimFame Career Coach Mason O’Brien dishes on 3 secrets to help you land that next role:
Are you grinding away and not getting the results you want? Finding that hike up the Hollywood hills a little more arduous than you’d imagined? Well, I’m here to help! Here are three ways you can get much closer to booking that next gig:

1. Invest in your career– Spend the money to get quality headshots. Find a photographer whose style you resonate with and you feel comfortable around. Review the photo packages they offer and make sure that retouching is included. Don’t skimp on hair and makeup either. You want to look your very best the day of the shoot and a superior stylist will be vital in achieving an effortless look.
2. Highlight your successes – A good resume will highlight your greatest achievements. Don’t feel bad about showing off and telling people exactly what you accomplished in your last role. Be actionable, specific, and direct with your information.
3. Showcase your talents – A demo reel is an impressive way to showcase your talents to a casting director. A reel appeals to different senses as they can hear and see your mannerisms. Compile video, stills, and audio of your best performances and have them professionally edited. Light music, a fun intro, and quick edits will grab people’s attention as well as their admiration for your work.

When preparing for your next audition, consider revamping your material to capitalize on professionalism. Attention to detail never goes unnoticed and could a major factor in booking your next gig!
