The #casting call is your chance to land your next job, and child casting calls are no different when it comes down to it. There are a few things that you should always bear in mind to ensure that you and your child can secure the position. Firstly, there is no need to worry. Just take a look at some of these helpful tips that will help you make the best first impression possible – helping you to land that dream job!
When you arrive for the casting process make sure that you give off an air of confidence. Whilst you may be nervous inside, it is possible to display an outer image of confidence and professionalism which will really impress the agents. Make sure you are polite and friendly to everyone you meet and that you are willing to go the extra mile to impress them. This will benefit your child immensely.
When you go in for the call, tell your child not to worry. Tell them to try and stand up straight and not to fiddle with their hands too much. Of course, the agents will be much more forgiving when it comes to #children so there is no need to worry too much about this. Though anything that will help your child will always be a bonus.
Before arriving to your call make sure you pick out a suitable outfit for your child. This might depend on the specific job, but in general you want to be at your best which means picking out types of clothes that suit your figure and are tasteful and appropriate. When it comes to child casting calls it is best not to go too heavily on the makeup if your child is a girl. Just make sure they are well dressed and looking smart!
When you arrive at the call with your child it is important you look out for them by making sure that the whole operation is legitimate. If there is something making you feel uneasy then it is perfectly acceptable to leave. You should also be wary of anyone who asks you for money. Just bear these factors in mind and everything should run smoothly.
Finally, if your child does get rejected then it is important to let them know that this is not the end of the world. There may be other options in the future, but for now your child still has the time to simply focus on being a child. Do not be bitter for the rejection yourself, simply thank the organizers for the opportunity and stay positive for your child.
Child casting calls can be intimidating both for children and parents who have never attempted them before, but in general those who stay calm and polite whilst keeping their head up high will always gain from the experience even if they do not ultimately get the job. You can always respond to other calls down the line, but for now just give it your best effort!
