Brian sends out his “Special Profile Castings” to only those members that have both a headshot and resume posted, so I wanted to make sure that you all have no trouble with your resume upload or filling one out.

To start, if you have worked ANY acting jobs at all, even a play in grade school or high school, I would suggest filling those job(s) into our “Fill out a resume” app found in the “Manage profile” link on the main menu. Filling in just one job will open the door to Brian’s “Special profile Castings” that he only sends out to those with a headshot AND resume.

Next I would suggest reading Brian’s article in our forum,
Click this: A resume that works - so you will too. Some good info here for those just starting.

Then look at some well-done resumes from our upgraded members. Below are some links. When you get to their profile, Click on the “Resume/Files” tab on their profile and open their resume.

Now although some are a bit different in fonts and how the top looks, the main job setup is the same…3 columns. The first column is the name of the project. The 2nd column is the character that you played. And the 3rd column is the production company. At the top should be name, contact info and some specs (hair color, eye color, height, weight and age range). At the bottom should be your special skills that a casting company may need…like you ride a Harley, or you are a gymnast, or firearms specialist, languages spoken, dialects, etc. And finally the classes that you have taken.

So Click the links below, take a look and let us know if you need more help. .
