entertainment industry coach question 566: A CD told me not to put any links on my emails because they are distracting, is this true?
If you asked 10 casting directors, you'd get 10 different answers. You are a business. You have to promote yourself. If you are sending in a headshot and resume for a project with a note, any additional links to social media, a website, a movie trailer, a reel, a blog, etc., would go under your signature. If they don't want to be distracted, they don't have to read down that far.
That said, make a note of the CD who doesn't like it and when you write to her/him, remove your signature.
