When In Limbo As An Expat Thespian

Greetings thespians! Sorry for the hiatus, but I was seeking new employment for awhile and now things are a bit more settled since I'm starting work this week.

In the spirit of feeling out-of-sorts I would love to talk about some things to remember when you're in a time of suspension. Today's post is

When In Limbo As An Expat Thespian

If you're like me and your boss tells you those dreaded words, "We're not resigning your contract," you go into Tunnel-Vision-Hunt-For-Job-Mode.  This is not a bad thing. However, there are a couple of things to remember when putting your acting tactics on simmer.

Keep Track Of Your Internet Presence -  Ever so often check those keywords that you want your social media audience to know you by.  For example,  #TheSeoulBrotha or The Expat Thespian.  Go to your favorite browser, type in the keywords and see where you stand.  If your not on the first page or if you've slipped then consider reconstructing your methods to keep your internet prowess strong.

No More One Step Forward, Three Steps Back - Being an expat actor is a risk.  @#$!, being an actor is a risk!  If you're looking for work make sure that the employer is aware of your goals as an actor.  I know some places aren't as supportive as Korea, but you want to make sure that during your search for employment you're not shooting yourself in the foot by settling for any job.  You've worked hard to get where you are expat actor, so be sure that your day job supports you. 

We are actors overseas and usually that means we're on contract.  But our job search doesn't have to put everything about acting on hold.  We just need to make sure that when we're on simmer, our presence is still strong.  We are expat thespians, the new working class!
