Also give a nod to other professional experiences you've had in which acting-related skills, such as composure, attention to detail and focus are transferable. Make note of it, no matter how small. Performances in school productions, community playhouse roles or even in neighborhood productions can all help highlight potential and ambition. Include any type of performance, not just acting. Anything that demonstrates your performance abilities and ease in front of a crowd can help promote your poise and stage presence qualities.
