Answering a Reader Question #321
Hi! I'm an aspiring model and I've just recently sent an application to a local modeling agency, but I feel like I screwed it up, I mean I sent this yesterday and I shouldn't be so anxious already. I'm new to this but have always loved fashion. I'm also not very tall (5'4''). since i don't have any experience i couldn't put much on the application. What do you think you would put if you were in my position? thanks ! :)
Hi, Anonymous! Anxiety and nerves are normal and happens to the best of us! Definitely do what you can to occupy your thoughts so that you aren't so focused on your submission...easier said than done, I know, but give it a shot. :-)
Do you mean you feel like you screwed up on the application because you didn't have a lot to put on there since you've never modeled before? If so, it is okay that you don't have any experience...as long as you stated this somewhere in your application, the agency will understand. They don't expect newbies to have any previous knowledge of modeling and won't count it against you.
If I was in your position, I would simply state that I have no previous modeling experience but am eager to learn, follow instructions very well and am very into fashion and the modeling industry. As long as they know you have personality, can follow directions and have a look they know they can successfully market, you'll be perfectly fine. So cross your fingers (and toes) and hope they reply back!
FYI: It isn't uncommon for them to take a while getting back to you. However, agencies only reply to people they're interested in working with so if they're not interested, you simply won't hear back. Give it about 4-6 weeks and if there is still no word from them, you can take that as a sign that they're probably not interested at the moment.
