NYCastings.com is a website that I use to get castings and breakdowns for myself and my family. I have booked numerous jobs over the past few years through this site including most recently a job for Carol’s Daughter. NYCatings.com allows you to create a profile, upload pics and a resume as well as video reels and audio and directly submit that info to people who have posted modeling or acting jobs on the site..
Using NYCastings isn’t free, but it  is inexpensive and it has more than paid for itself. (It is also tax deductible)There are a number of ways you can pay – you do a trial, or pay monthly or even save with an annual subscription. With a membership – you can self-submit your portfolio to auditions, castings calls as well as roles for print, tv, film and live events. They are also broken down into categories so that you can save time and look at only the listings that are of interest to you.

There is also a business directory with the contact info of many of the NY agencies, casting directors & managers. You can use this section to submit your profile to try to get representation for your child if you are looking for an agency or manager.
Once you set up your profile, submitting your child for jobs can be done via your computer or mobile device. Make sure you sign up for the text and email alerts so you get notified when something fits your profile. The quicker you respond, the better your chances of being seen and booked for the job.
