Second, your Portfolio speaks for you! You might be exceptional, but if you don’t document the right angles and poses, no one would be convinced. A successful portfolio sells to agencies and clients. It would be better if you built a collection that showcases all of your highlights. The portfolio must be diversified and robust.
She stresses the importance of commitment and professional ethics at work. Your dedication to your discipline will establish your goals. Sacrificing your sweet tooth and sticking to your diet requires a commitment on your part to make it work. Don’t forget to hone your professional skills alongside. Make those calls, contact, interact and have good relationships with people in the industry. These modest but cohesive efforts will build personal and professional relationships. People might not congratulate you often, but they will definitely exclude you if you display a lousy demeanor or lack professionalism.
The fourth point is to be careful, alert and swift in the industry. Do your homework on the model agency you sign up with. Being new to a place or profession shouldn’t become your excuse for making an irresponsible choice. You have to take matters into your own hands – go ahead, ask and find out! Interview your fellow role models, observe the routines, and most importantly, don’t despair of getting started. A thorough groundwork would save you a lot of hassle down the road.
