Great Jobs For Actors!

Get A Job

Once you find a place and get settled, the first thing you need to do is get a job.

Typically, auditions take place in the mornings and afternoons. So a nighttime job is helpful or a very flexible day job where you can set your own hours. The most important thing when considering a job is their flexibility in letting you leave for auditions, or switching hours. You came here to become a professional entertainer, so don't get stuck in a job that doesn't let you build your career. Hopefully you came here with at least $8,000 so you could get started on "opening" your new acting business.

Your first year in LA should be acclimating yourself to your new city. Getting your place to live secured, creating a stable source of income and saving money from your new job. Be realistic. Becoming a successful actor takes 10-15 years. You are here to create a life; the life of an actor. Not to become an overnight success. That rarely happens, perhaps as often as being struck by lighting twice, in the same part of your body. It is so rare you should just forget about that happening. And if you think it's going to happen like that go home, because you will be in for a HUGE disappointment. Instead, you will get there the way every other actor has, at least 99.99999999 % of them; with hard work, perseverance, talent, the connections you build, doing good strong acting work, knowledge, marketing yourself and NEVER GIVING UP.
