How to Make your Resume Stand Out

How to Make your Resume Stand Out - The process of getting acting jobs is always a matter of getting noticed and making a good impression. The humble paper resume is no exception to this rule. While the audition is always the biggest defining factor in whether or not an actor gets a role, a good resume can be vital in order to even get an audition in the first place. Therefore, it's important to take the time to make sure your resume stands out.

List your stage name prominently (if you use one) in a well labeled and in an easy-to-spot location.

Be concise and straightforward. List relevant facts about your career without editorial comment or attempts to impress through persuasion. Listing facts in an objective manner is not only the most professional way to write a resume, it sends the message that you are confident that the details about your career, and eventually, your audition, can speak for themselves.

How to Make your Resume Stand Out

Select highlights of your work. Once you've been acting for long enough, you won't be able to fit everything on one page (or describe all of it even if it does fit). Therefore, when you have to decide what makes the cut. In some cases, it's best to list the most recent experience, such as times when you want to show that you've been working steadily. On the other hand, you may opt for listing your best roles, rather than your most recent, based on such factors as prestige, appropriateness for the current audition, or displaying your diversity as an actor.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

Urban Meyer Stepping Down - Well, it appears as if it’s deja vu all over again.

Less than 12 months after retiring and then un-retiring, Urban Meyer is apparently stepping down as Florida’s head coach. There’s no word on if he will be stepping back up tomorrow.

Urban Meyer Stepping Down

According to Todd Wright of Sporting News radio, and AOL Fanhouse‘s Brett McMurphy Meyer will announce at a 5 p.m. ET press conference Wednesday that he is resigning/retiring as the Gators’ head coach. There are no further details available at this time, other than GatorUpdates reporting over the weekend that Meyer checked into a hospital the week of the UGA game and has been undergoing tests since.

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy

Matt Cassel Undergoes Appendectomy - The mystery of Matt Cassel missing practice Wednesday coupled with the Kansas City Chiefs promoting quarterback Tyler Palko has been solved.

The team has announced that Cassel underwent an appendectomy on Wednesday morning. The Chiefs say they expect Cassel to return to work this week. Returning to work and being ready to perform well in the team’s biggest game of the season on Sunday against San Diego are two different things. ESPN’s Adam Schefter is reporting the Chiefs are viewing Cassel as being questionable to play in the game.

Clearly, this is terrible timing. The Chiefs are 8-4 and would take a major step toward the playoffs with a win over the Chargers. Cassel has played very well for the past two months. If he can’t play, the brittle Brodie Croyle would face the Chiefs in his first action of the season. Croyle last played in Week 13 of the 2009 season.
