Keep Your Profile Updated: More Chances for Work!
Did you know that our Casting Directors can search Casting Networks for talent with a particular shoe size? Or hair color? Or nationality? Or skill?
It’s true! And the more complete your profile is, the more Casting Director’s results you’ll show up in… which means more chances for work!
To complete or update your information:
- log-in to your Casting Networks account
- click on “Profile” at the top of the screen
From there, review all the information you’ve entered on each page, and click the “Save & Continue” button at the bottom.
Keeping your profile as complete and true as possible, shows the honesty and dedication you have to your craft!
When you have a clip or a reel attached to your resume, it goes with every submission. There is an icon next to your photo’s thumbnail that indicates to the Casting Director that you have media.
