Answering a Reader Question #358
Hi Dania a question i have related to the modelling industry; I'm just beginning and have been and had an interview with Vivienne's and ,now here comes the part which upsets me, I went to walking classes at viviennes and was told that they would get back to me in a day or two and still I have not heard from them, are they really interested in me at all or am i just being hopeful for nothing.
Hey there, Anonymous! Agencies are really busy companies and deal with a lot of stuff on a daily basis. It isn't uncommon for them to take a while to get back to someone or even forget completely. It's not that you're not important enough to remember or that they're being disrespectful--they're more than likely just busy so see it from a business aspect instead of a personal one.
If it's been longer than 5 business days (that means Monday thru Friday, not including weekends) since your interview, then either send an email or call the person you were in contact with at the agency and let them know you're doing a follow-up to see if they're still interested in potentially representing you.
In most cases, follow-ups are not recommended but since you already had an interview and connected with someone at the agency, this is an exception to the rule. Whenever an agency says they'll get back to you in X number of days, you typically don't want to take it too literally.
