Responding To Rejection For The Expat Thespian

 

My last two post have been about strategies to keep your emails short and concise. However, no matter how much we cater to our contacts at some point we will read those dreaded words, "I'd like to be removed from your list."   Don't fear expat thespian because when this happens you have an amazing opportunity to shine. Today we will discuss

 

Responding To Rejection For The Expat Thespian

 

Respond ASAP - Let the professional know that you've heard their request by responding within the first 30 minutes.  This assures them that you've received and respected their decision to move on.  Because you should respect that decision and if you wait to long you could generate ill will.

Give Thanks - It doesn't matter if they were on your contact list for one day, provide them with a heartfelt "Thanks" for the work they do, in this industry, and for being willing to show their honesty toward your craft.  Just because they said "NO" doesn't mean they didn't like your acting.  They may have an actor that already fits your type or they could be getting out of the industry.  In truth, you never know. 

Ensure Welcome - Let the last thing they read be the statement that they're always welcomed back.  For example, "If anything changes in the future please know that you are more than welcomed to return."  Nothing screams confidence in your professionalism and artistic ability than being able to accept rejection with a sense of class.

Contact Info - That's right, provide that signature, headshot & resume in that last email you send.  Why? Because they may be impressed with your response and take one last look at your information.  In other words, don't just walk away with your tail between your legs.  Hold your head high for you're an Expat Thespian!

I have been browsing on-line greater than three hours as of
late, but I by no means discovered any fascinating article like yours.
It's pretty price sufficient for me. In my view, if all site owners
and bloggers made just right content as you probably did, the web will probably be a lot
more helpful than ever before.

Howdy just wanted to give you a quick heads up.
The words in your content seem to be running off the screen in Ie.
I'm not sure if this is a formatting issue or something to do with internet
browser compatibility but I figured I'd post to let you know.

The design and style look great though! Hope you get the problem fixed soon. Thanks
