Employment / advice on interviewing
« on: Jul 10, 2007, 12:57 pm »
So I recently got some feedbac from one of my references on my resume saying that my interviewing is not so great.  So I need some advice on how to improve on the interviewing part of the process.  So I was wondering for those out there who actually interview prospective SM's and ASM's what kind of questions do you like to hear asked of you in an interview?  What do you like to see from a person at the face to face interview? 

For those out there that keep going to interviews what kind of questions do you tend to ask?  How do you prepare yourself for an interview?



Employment / resume format
« on: Nov 13, 2006, 03:12 pm »
I'm in the process of reworking my resume as I hit a point where I need to start lining up some more jobs, and while adding in shows I have done since the last update of my resume I look and am not fully happy with the layout.

I was wondering on a resume what people consider the important information to list.

I've seen some do it the following ways:

Job - Show Title - Theatre Company - Location - Dates

Show Title - Job - Director - Theatre

I'm just wondering what others do and what reason you chose the listings.  I mean i know show title, theatre company and job title are all needed items, but why would you say choose to list the date, director, or locations.

Employment / resume questions

So I was wondering what those of you out there who do hirering look for in the resume?  What I have now is listed as my title, show name - theatre company, location, and date ex:

"Stage Manager, Duality Riddlemark Theatre, Chicago, IL July 2006"

Now I know some people have the names of directors on there, while others don't.  Is that something worth having on the resume?  Also as far as dates go how specific does it need to get?  I see some people just have a year where as I tend to put month and year. 

Any thoughts and tips would be great. If you would like to give specific constructive criticisms on my resume you can find a copy on my website:

Thanks for any help and tips.

Ok so I have a question.  All through college I have never been able to get a definitive answer cause each person told me something different.  What is the difference between the job of a Stage Manager and the job of a Production Stage Manager?
