Finding the Next Job
« on: Feb 07, 2011, 08:34 pm »
I am an opera ASM currently, but also work in equity houses and have interest in dance, as well.
Is it the best idea to send out "interest" letters to houses I would like to work in before they have a job posted? For example, should I spend some time this month (February) sending out my resume to houses for the fall of 2011? Do I need to wait until a job is posted?
Howdo I know what will be "too pushy" and what will be considered reasonably assertive?

I say go for it. That's how I got my current job  ;D  It isn't pushy, it's proactive.

Be sure to write a killer cover letter and that your resume looks fantastic. It helps to have someone who sees a lot of resumes pass their desk take a look and give you an honest critique.
