Landing a role is all about making a great first impression. A big part of a good meeting is being cordial and polite. A good tip I learned many years ago is to always leave a casting director with a thank you note. This simple gesture and time honored tradition will really make you stand out!
Get yourself a set of plain thank you notes and draft a friendly yet professional note to leave behind following your next audition. Your kind words will build relationships and in turn give you a better chance at booking roles.
Try it out! Let me know how you present your thank you note at your next audition.
