Most Actors Spend a Lot of Time Training Themselves to be an Actor

Most actors spend a lot of time training themselves to be an actor. And I kind of didn’t do that. I just started doin’ it in front of an audience and had to deliver. – David Carradine

Getting work experience and climbing onto the career ladder has always been a difficult task, but in these hard economic times of high unemployment rates, you need a gleaming resume to stand out from the crowd of people fighting for even the most basic jobs. College students are often particularly disadvantaged as they do not have time to work a full-time job, and therefore, often lack any relevant experience or marketable skills when they later fully enter the job market. Getting some work experience without having a full-time job is therefore veritable gold dust for students who want to dive straight into the world of work after graduation.

Official US figures show that there are at least 3 people fighting for each job opening, but that statistic isn’t even the worst of it. College graduates all over the developed world are finding work hard to come by, with 85 graduates competing for each graduate job opening in the UK. So how do you get the right experience (or indeed any experience) to prove yourself and move to the top of the pile?
