Auditions for Actors
For actors, auditions
are the equivalent of job interviews. If you don't cut the mustard,
you don't get the job. It's a great thing. A lot of actors hate the
audition process, but they should see it as something that comes
with the territory and realize that auditions are your chance to
show your stuff. You get that one shot to impress them with your
impeccable talent and your affinity for acting. Auditions are where
you get to show them how you stand out from all the rest.
If this isn't how you feel about acting and auditions, what are you
doing it for? It should be fun if you are doing something that you
love. Sure you get nervous, sure people are jerks, sure half the
other people you run into on auditions are annoying and make you
want to quit acting, but should that keep you from doing your best
and looking forward to the next opportunity to act in front of people
that could further your career and let you make a living through
your love for acting?
All in all it's the same no matter what you do. For actors, it's
auditions, for the rest of us, it's job interviews, but realistically,
no matter what your profession, there will always be annoying people,
mean people, nerve-wracking stressful situations, and the desire
to move forward in your career.
