Talent Scout for Philadelphia with Vip Talent Connect & Alycia Kaback
July 25th 2011
This week at VIP Talent Connect & Alycia Kaback we answer the question how do I become a talent scout? All the major agencies from Ford Model Management and Elite find new talent by hiring talent scouts. Talent Scouts work in New York, Miami, London all over the world. In the music business, the talent scout is part of the Artists and Repertoire division of the record label. Their job is to find new talent and bring them to the company. Get started by scouting out talent where you are and perhaps even forwarding that information to a targeted person within an A & R department of a label. Make sure you have an agreement with the talent so that you’re not cut out completely. In this business it’s definitely who you know that matters.
What I do in my job as a Model Scout is look for potential model talent. Some models are Runway Models and need to be tall & thin, but most are regular sized people like you & me who have attractive features and are usually height/weight proportionate. Print models can be any shape & size depending on which catalogues are looking for talent. Promotional models usually appear at events and do public appearances.
What I like most about my job is the look on someone’s face when I ask, “Have you ever considered Modeling?” Most women & men never think their dreams could be realized in a few, short moments. I love to help people get where they want to be and to keep them motivated along the path of their dreams!
Now, I want to say that Modeling is a challenging career that is NOT like the movies and NOT just hanging around wearing nice clothes. It takes dedication and responsibility to be in a high pressure career such as Modeling.
I love my job and wouldn’t trade it for anything! From VIP Talent Connect and Alycia Kaback, we hope this answers your question.
