How do I break into the adult entertainment industry?

As with anything in life, part of your success will depend on hard work and part will depend on luck. You have to be willing to go the extra mile, take chances, and meet as many people as you can. Take the industry as seriously as you would any other. This means you show up for appointments on time, be professional at all times, and keep yourself well-groomed. There are many different ways to actually get your first break, but the SexyJobs.com Network can help you maximize your chances of success. First, we suggest you place a resume, so that all our prospective employers can find you. For best results, we recommend you include a photo. You want to stand out from the crowd, don't you? It also helps to upgrade to a Gold Jobseeker Ad, as your profile gets enhanced with a "GOLD Jobseeker" icon and receives increased exposure on the "Find Talent" drop-down. Finally, we encourage you to learn as much as possible about how the adult entertainment industry works. One good way to do this is to attend one or more of the Adult Industry Events which take place in many different places throughout the world.

Do I have to include a phone number with my resume?

Absolutely not. The only contact information you are required to submit with your resume is an email address. If you do provide a number, please be aware that employers may choose to call you before emailing you. Some jobseekers prefer not to list their phone numbers in their resumes for privacy or screening reasons. Furthermore, you may not want to give out your primary email address if it contains your full name or other sensitive information. Many services, such as Yahoo and Gmail, provide free email addresses if you want to set up a specific account to use with your resume.

This way employers will know that you want to work together and they can quickly view both of your resumes.

However, all registered employers are required to provide a name, billing address, email address, phone number and a valid payment method as part of the registration process. We recommend that jobseekers ask for references from potential employers before accepting any offers. You may also want to consider bringing a chaperone with you to any job assignment.
