Working with an agent

Working with an agent is similar to me like working with a staffing company. You have to submit your resume or comp card and see what companies want to hire you. Your interview can go really well or not so well. In any case you have to keep moving forward.

Staffing companies and modeling agencies get tons of comp cards and resumes each day. They have to find the right person who will fill the needs that the client is requesting. This means that your pics and your information have to be spot on. There is no faking the sizes or using an image that has drastically been altered with photo enhancing software.

Finding the requirements for submissions is first off important. You don’t want to send them something that is going to land in the trash can or not even get opened. Learn the art of the presentation.

Once you have that agent or recruiter, make that rapport. Just don’t think that you are the only person who is looking to land that assignment. There are tons of models who are about to do anything to land on the cover or in the pages of the latest magazines. Your agent will keep you informed if they can about anything that they will submit you for. You might be the look one day and then not the next. You can’t get discouraged to the agent as again they are doing what the client request. Don’t kill the messenger. Also don’t think that once you have submitted your information that the jobs are going to fall in your lap either. There is always work to be done on both sides. See what you can do to improve your chances into getting hired.
