A good rule of thumb in picking out a reputable agency is to chose the ones who DON’T offer schooling! Call an agency and ask if they represent plus-size or commercial models.
Rejection and learning how to deal with it is critical to the success, happiness and health of any model or aspiring model. Whether every agency you’ve visited has passed on you or if you have an agency and the clients just aren’t booking you, realizing that rejection isn’t personal is key.
The moment you sign the contract, your agency should take control of your career. Some agents are better than others, so be sure to ask lots of questions and be proactive. Make sure that after your first meeting with the agency, you have a clear plan and timeline for your development and next steps. Don’t be afraid to take notes. Your next steps should include grooming, testing, and practice.

The first agency you ever work with will most likely become your mother agency. A mother agent is the agency who invests the time (and money) to develop you into a working model, represents you to clients for bookings, and eventually promotes you to other agencies for representation in other markets. They will want partial (if not full) control over your career including the photos in your portfolio, what agencies you sign with in other markets, what path your career takes and what color your hair will be.
There are two common ways a model can find an agent: open calls and mail in. Relying on being discovered while shopping at the mall is not a good strategy (but it can happen).
While some girls dream of being a model from the first time they pick up a fashion magazine, the reality is that this is an occupation and, like any occupation, there are requirements. Unfortunately, unlike a doctor or even an actor, some of the requirements for being a working, successful cannot be learned, purchased, or faked — though there are companies out there whom would lead unsuspecting aspiring models to believe otherwise.You have to have the right combination of genetics, business-savvy, personality, motivation, and luck to be truly successful.
