Did You Know...? #13
The agency staff member that expressed initial interest has to take the model's photos, info and other materials to their higher-ups and discuss things in greater detail. This could mean having a panel of the agency's decision makers talking about a model's chances at being successful with their agency, pros and cons, etc.
The final decision could be up to one head honcho, such as the agency's President, Owner, CEO, etc. or it may require a vote from a handful of agency staff.
So if you've gotten initial interest from an agency but are wondering why it's taking so long for them to get back to you or if you later find out that they won't be proceeding with signing you, that could be why. Unfortunately, agencies aren't obligated to explain any of this to you so if you find yourself in this situation, it may shed some light as to how and why things played out the way they did.
