Answer:

One way to get out of a work slump is to look into training opportunities provided by your organization. Many jobs, particularly if they are in state federal government, provide in-house training opportunities about customer service, leadership, project management, stress management, health and well-being, and computer skills. Your organization may also have opportunities to attend workshops, seminars, and conferences to connect with other professionals in your field. In addition, joining a professional organization allows for individualized learning. While joining a professional organization may have an annual fee, some of the benefits include educational classes, podcasts, presentations, meetings, local chapters, newsletters, job listings, and scholarship opportunities. Another option is to look into continuing education credits either at a local college or public library. Many colleges and libraries offer continuing education opportunities that allow individuals to learn a specific skill or topic of interest.

Answer:

The short answer is: yes! Libraries, as a whole, have several different types of books available, ranging from fiction to nonfiction, graphic novels and comics, to picture books, board books, and beginning readers. There are collections for the following age groups: children, teens, and adults. Books are also available in several formats, including: print, audiobooks, eBooks, and eAudiobooks. eBooks and eAudiobooks can be downloaded or streamed on Android and iOS devices, depending on your preference. Libraries even have movies, music, magazines, and more! All of these items are available for FREE when you visit the library or check them out using your library card. Looking to learn a new language, bolster your resume, complete your GED, or pay for school? Your local library may have an abundance of databases and services that fit those needs.

Answer:

There are several different ways to gain experience for your film/theater resume including: internships, apprenticeships/training programs, student projects, work-study programs, workshops/seminars, and volunteering. The first step is identifying your areas of interest in these fields. Next, start local. Many states have film offices that house information about production companies in your area, as well as film festivals that take place during the year. Film festivals are a great way to connect with others in the industry, especially in independent short films and independent features. Checking out your state's arts and culture office is another way to find learning and work opportunities. Community theaters seek volunteers to help in a number of areas, including: carpentry, costumes, hair & makeup, stage management, deck crew, sound and light operators, among others. Volunteering is one way to build rapport with an organization that can lead to references and recommendations for jobs down the road. Working in both front of house and back of house is an excellent way to learn how the different aspects of theater works together to create productions that engage audiences. Front of house work primarily deals with customer service, box office and ticketing, and ushering, while back of house gets into the technical aspects of production and putting on the show.
