All right. All right. So I'm sure most of you are here to find out what resources to use to even get those leads to begin with. Well, to what your patience and persistence, I've attached a document containing a list of websites you could use for networking, staying connected and getting jobs into supplementary Resources tab. And now there is no official site for insiders or the Hollywood in crowd to get jobs unless you are in the union of which is an entirely separate cause on his own. Anyway, just a brief overview on the top three resources I use, in my opinion, we have Mandy calm, the most popular film job sites where you can actually select your location.

Post job offers and apply directly for a job is free. And many people including industry professionals use this platform so you have to have a really polished resume and website to stand out against the competition. besides it being free to use his main services, the other pluses include a community that is a very responsive and almost very up to date information about the current jobs available in the industry. Then there is media match. Now it seems like they have recently changed their website a bit, but you still kind of have to pay a small amount to apply for jobs so it seeps out the unprofessional or non serious individuals. Although it is generally less popular than Mandy, it does have a forum where you can post for crew calls, or respond to crew calls, along with other forum intriguing topics.

In addition, they also have a very organized list of active companies and professionals in the industry, which you can browse to see where you stand in comparison to your peers. Then we have the ever growing, ever expanding stationary to now. I heard about it through an actor friend of mine, and ever since I've joined Wow, I have no regrets. Not only is it full Very active and communicative people here. But it behaves almost like a Facebook for filmmakers, except with more random people sending you network requests than usual. Personally, I've rarely used the jobs bought here.

But they do lose their jobs based on production phases and production titles, which is an interesting way of doing it. So if by now you're still stuck only on knowing which phase you want to work in stage day two is very useful for you. In addition, it has blogging capabilities, webinars, and an open forum discussion free for all. So if you'd like publishing a post on what you ate for dinner, this is a place now with all those resources given to you what are you going to do, how do you reach out to people? In the next lecture, I'll provide you with some tips on email etiquette and wait before you think this is just another common sense thing that you should skip. These tips are actually Some of my own personal tricks on how you can email and reach out to others and not sound like a spammer.

So keep watching and don't skip it.
