Tips For Success In The Industry

By Carl Radar

What to Watch Out for in the Industry

Let’s go over some basic tips when it comes to getting started with your acting or modeling career so you can avoid being the victim of a scam. These suggestions are very easy to follow, although you’re anxious to jump in and rise to the top, keep these things in mind.

Always be sure to see if the talent agency you are signing with is licensed. Any licensed agency must abide by all the state’s rules. So checking this out is the first thing to do, before contacting them to begin.

Your Agency’s History

See how long they’ve been in business. Obviously the longer they’ve been in business, the more success and contacts they’ve made. This goes such a long way, because in this industry it’s all about who you know.

Any agency, photographer, scout, etc that guarantees you work…run! Think twice about giving them your hard earned money because it may lead to a let down. On the other hand, if they’re very confident about you, your looks or talent don’t misunderstand their optimism.

It Ain’t Personal, it’s Business

One of the things that many models don’t understand is that you’re entering in business here…none of this is personal. You need to treat everyone with the proper respect because you are developing relationships with people who can either help you or hurt you down the road.

If you don’t like a certain job offer or the terms of the job, you should go ahead and respectively negotiate for terms that make you feel more comfortable. It’s all right to turn jobs down if you have to but do it in the proper manner so that any possible employers will feel good about bringing you a job in the future that may be better for you.
