Fall into Audition Season with Style

Hello Sexi Soprano fans! Fall is just around the corner and we all know what that means... pumpkin pie, apple orchards, the falling of covered leaves, and apple crisp! While the fall does mean that, it also means the start of undergraduate/graduate APPLICATIONS. Before you engage in “freak out” mode, read this article to help a little with the process. As a fellow victim of the ceremonial process this year, I am here to tell you that everything will be okay.

 The most confusing application item is often the resume.  Don’t pull your hair out.  While the “perfect format” constantly changes, the example below is polished, eye-catching, and solid. The format has changed over the years but recently one has been deemed as “the chosen one” and you can find an example below!
Remember: Always tell the truth when you submit your resumé.  Companies check!

Limit your resume to one page.  Even though you have tons of awesome experience, employers want to read a nice clear and concise paper of the roles you have done, not a dictionary. To create a sense of unity, use the same header for each audition document, like your resume and repertoire list.
Keep your font lively yet professional. No chalkboard or curvy cursive fonts allowed ladies. Make sure your headshots look like the current you! If you recently chopped of twelve inches of your golden locks, it’s time to get a new headshot. Just remember we say this with love, soprano friends! Pretty please, with lots of beautiful notes on top, do not hesitate to contact us with questions, concerns, or exciting new information. We love hearing from you and enjoy your responses. Until next time divas!
