Be Available
Join 1000's of Authors at StreetArticles Today!

Are you available? You need to be. If you are unavailable, you may miss out on opportunities. If you are available, on the other hand, you could have a chance at some very unique experiences.

One opportunity you might get by making yourself available is a job as a movie extra. These jobs are sometimes announced on the evening news. Production companies often go to major cities in the course of filming a movie. If they come to a city near you, they may hold a casting call. Anyone interested in being in the movie is invited to go to the casting call. At this event, the directors will tell you where to go, where to stand, and what they need you to do. Do you have a special talent, such as singing or dancing? If they like what you do, and it can be worked into the movie, you may get cast. If you do get cast, plan on working at least 12 hours each day. Bring something with you to keep you occupied between scenes, such as a book, journal, or playing cards. There are other work opportunities that you can get by making yourself available. Friends might need help moving, for example. Work opportunities are not the only reason to be available, however.

Another reason to make yourself available is for friends and family who want to spend time with you. Coworkers who have the same days off as you do may want to get together with you to go out to lunch. Siblings might want to get together with you to catch up, since everyone has been so busy.

If you do not make yourself available, you can wind up missing out on some really cool opportunities. Friends may go to a casting call for a movie, get cast in it, and even get a speaking part. When you get together, they will likely be very excited and will want to tell you all about their experience. You will be standing there listening and wishing that you had been there. This situation can be avoided, of course, by making yourself available.

One way to be available is to have a cell phone. Cell phones allow you to be reached almost anywhere you go. That way, if anyone tries to contact you, the two of you will be able to connect. You can then make your plans.

Another way to make yourself available is to have a current email address. That way, anyone who tries to contact you by email will be able to.

Be available. Have a cell phone, and keep it turned on. An opportunity could be waiting.
