We all know about that long-standing battle between a potential employer looking for more experience than you possess for their next hire and the ability to gain the experience necessary to be a true candidate for that job you know you can crush. Mark is here to discuss ways in which you can “build your portfolio” or set yourself up for success in the touring world to not only get your foot in the door and get your first gig, but he’ll also discuss about the things you need to adopt to keep getting phone calls and filling your schedule with the work you want to be a part of!
