Whatever you decide to become in life should be thought about very carefully so you don’t look back and regret having wasted your time and energy. The same goes if you decide to pursue an acting career when there are probably other things you should have been doing.
But because we are living in an edge where we are glued to the television set almost everyday, the employment of actors is expected to grow as fast as the average for all occupations. The challenging part which aspiring actors should know is that competition is going to be fierce.
While you are sending out head shots and resumes to agents, directors and producers, there are numerous auditions held all across the country even if you are already living in either New York or Los Angeles. So, you may go to one knowing that there is another one happening a few blocks from where you are right now.
Some people get lucky when they seen walking on the street and an agent walks up to them and offers them a chance to stardom. Naturally, these are things beyond your control and you just have to accept it. For a lot of actors and actresses who have been in this business for quite some time, the only advise they will tell you is to be both patient and be persistent because it is only those who don’t give up will be able to land a job.
