EVERY TIME: "IT'S SHOW TIME!"
Once we start sending out your materials, we may get a call or email from a manager who is interested. Many times that manager will ask for you to send what you did in the past three days. That means you had better get in the mindset that every time----"IT'S SHOW TIME!".
Always look your best and do your best to give it 110 percent.
Another reason to think this way is because you never know who may be watching. Perhaps a manager is visiting your city for a day or two. Invariably, they will watch the local news. Moreover, I'm willing to bet that if a manager wants to see what you did last night, they can simply go on your station's web site and see you. If you're on there with a disheveled look and a sloppy performance, that's an opportunity blown.
EVERY TIME: "IT'S SHOW TIME!"
