So what do you do? You are now just one of many pretty faces, and the modeling agency doesn’t know you and therefore doesn’t trust you with higher paying jobs, like print jobs.
Don’t wait for them to call you – call them! In the beginning, you need to be calling (yes, calling, not emailing) your new agency every week to ten days. Keep these phone calls short and sweet: just remind the agency that you are there and anxious and eager for work. Do NOT let more than ten days pass without speaking to your agency.
In the beginning, do not be too picky about what work you take. Chances are when your modeling agency does start calling you with work; it will not be the print and television work you want. Your agency will start you out with promotional work so they can find out if you are reliable and if you follow directions. If possible, take this work- you need to pay your dues and build a relationship with your agency. Just because you are taking the promotional work does not mean that you stop pushing for the print work or the TV commercials while you are still building.
The bottom line: be proactive. Don’t just wait for the phone to ring or you will not work as a model.
If you let them – they will forget you.
