Getting Jobs in Entertainment question 1126: Why is it such a Catch 22 to get into a Union?
Because being a union member means that you have a level of experience that you have to prove. Producers who hire union members expect that level of expertise. Therefore you have to work a certain number of days to get the experience to be allowed into the union.
In most cases, the people that get their days to qualify for union membership have gone the extra mile to get those days. People who are wiling to go the extra mile are the ones who people want to hire. Evaluate what you're doing to go the extra mile. And if you're not going the extra mile and can't figure out how, that's what coaching is for.
