The book is the essential guide to putting yourself in the best possible position to get work, to keep getting it, and to make a living from it. It covers a comprehensive range of topics including: Finding work: the types of jobs on offer, how to track them down, working with your agent; Landing the job: nailing auditions and meetings (and how they can go wrong), writing a winning letter; Promoting yourself: compiling a showreel, building your website, choosing (and resembling!) your headshots, networking both on- and offline; Supporting yourself: choosing a suitable day job, joining Equity, staying positive, avoiding feeling isolated. Each chapter features a work task to inspire you to reflect on what you've learned and to put your knowledge into practice."--Provided by publisher."@en ;
