If you have a website, public Facebook page, Twitter profile, or IMDB listing–put those links here. Include any union affiliations or specialties you might have. This makes it easier for other members to find you.

12. Sharing your profile

Think of this as a mini-website provided by the RIFC. If you don’t have a website, this a great way to share your info with potential clients, production companies, and casting agents.

In the top-right menu, click on “Profile” to get back to your profile. Select the web address in the URL address bar, send that link to whoever your want and they’ll see your profile and any information you shared.

Your profile must be set to “Everyone” in the privacy account settings in order to share your link with non-members.
