Shopping at the Job Market


Well, I have certainly realized that it is tough to get a foothold on consistent income doing the acting thing out here, so I've decided to look in earnest for some decent paying, non-acting related part-time work.  And I've noticed so far that finding such a position might nearly be as difficult!  The whole process of searching and sending out resumes/letters can be tiring, especially when you imagine that likely any job you apply for will also be applied for by a hundred (at least) other folks.  But, that's the current job market anywhere I suppose.

As I was telling a friend the other day, 8 hours behind a desk seems so much more daunting to me than 14 hours on a set right now.  Or maybe I'm just afraid that the desk symbolizes giving up on the actual goal of being here to act.  In any case, I'm just hoping that I can score a consistent acting gig sometime soon to make a potential desk job unnecessary (or short-lived!)  That said, if anyone has any leads on solid part-time work out in LA, please let me know :)
