Hi Tony!
Most people don’t even take the time to tell a person how to reach their goal. I want to thank you for everything and for responding to my messages. Sometimes I just test people to see if they really care about my career and you do. You can continue to send me some tips on how I can accomplish my goals, because you inspire me a lot. Thank you for caring.

Find Available Acting Jobs
By Widening Your Search

There are many different available acting jobs, many different ways to use your acting skills. But if you are like many young actors, you might say, “Yeah great but I want to be on film and television only!” Or, “I want to be a film star.” Or, “I want to be on Disney Channel (or CSI or Criminal Minds, or, or, or…)”

I have two questions for you. First, do you think that all the stars you see today started out on the program or in the film you see them on now? Secondly, most actors don’t work continuously doing the kinds of jobs they really want. So if that is true for you too, why not get some experience doing something else that will help you learn and that will help keep you sharp at your craft at the same time?

If you widen your search in terms of the types of jobs you are looking for, you just might find yourself working a lot more.

Here below is a list of 21 different ways to use your acting skills.

1. Hosting

2. Presenting at live events

3. Spokesperson for companies

4. Theatre

5. Film (student films, independent films, feature length, etc.)

6. Television (day-time, prime-time, variety programming, films made for television, sitcom, etc.)

7. Documentary narration

8. Re-enactments (FBI forensic files, crime re-enactment scenes, historical re-enactments, documentary, etc.)

9. Reality TV participants

10. Voice over

11. Film and television program voice dubbing

12. Audio book reader

13. Educational entertainment (communicating of concepts in a way that is entertaining, but that provides learning at the same time)

14. On camera commercial

15. Commercial print ads

16. Mime

17. Puppeteer

18. Industrials and corporate videos

If You Can’t Find Available Acting Jobs, Create Your Own Opportunities!

19. Create your own program, film or television show online! Want some examples?

a. We Need Girlfriends (This You Tube show just got picked up by CBS! One of the actors is a guy who studied at the school where I study acting.)
b. Roommates (On My Space)

I’m not here to comment on the quality of these programs. You might or might not like it, but one thing is for sure. There are a lot of people out there who do. Just look at the comments.

20. Start you own business of offering yourself as a spokesperson to help companies sell their products.

21. Start your own production company or theatre company with some actor friends, put up plays or productions and showcase yourself, sell your productions, invite people/friends/casting directors and agents to your shows, etc.

You can use a vast array of methods to learn about the people who can help you find available acting jobs. There are talent agencies for example that cater to their actor clients in all the different areas listed above.
