Whether you are a model or an actor, you do not need to get an agent to help you get far in the industry. An agent will be the person to help you book jobs and ensure that you get fair treatments in the jobs by negotiating your contracts.

When selecting my modeling acting agent, the first thing to do is to get some research done and get enough background information about the agency. You can carry out online research to get this agency. Alternatively, you can talk to other actors and models represented by the agencies. You have to be very careful. One of the red flags to look out
for when hiring an agent is reputation. A good agency should be well reputable; a company with a well recognize brand name. It doesn’t have to be high class or very popular but you have to be careful about little known agency that nobody has ever heard about. When unsure about an agency, just conduct an online search; if nothing comes up about it, then you need to be very wary about entering into a contract with them.

Another red flag that you should look out for is agents that are too quick to suggest that you get some work done such as cosmetics surgery. If I am a model or actress, my modeling acting agent should be able to land jobs for me with asking me to go through surgery. Some of these quack agency work with particular surgeons and so they may ask you to get a nose job, not because you need one but because they are marketing their cosmetics surgeon. If you are hiring the agent for your child, never accept such suggestions, your child does not do cosmetics surgery to get into the industry. Go and get another agent.

My modeling acting agent should be someone who I can communicate with. You need to tell your agent what you want and the agent should listen to you. For instance, if you are against posing for photos in the nude or acting in naked scenes, your agent should not try to force or coerce you to take jobs that are against your principals. If you notice that the agent does not respect your opinions, then you have to get out of there and look for someone else to represent you.

The main objective of my modeling acting agent is to get me jobs. If you find out that your agent is not getting you jobs or even an audition, then you need to leave that agency. Some agents take on a lot of clients, then in this group of clients, they have favorites for one reason or the other. This kind of agent may then devote their time and attention in building the career of one of his clients and neglect the rest. If you find yourself working with such an agency, you need to find a way to terminate your contract. An agent basically works for you so there is no point in sticking with someone who is not doing their job because if he is not working, you are not working.
