Looking for a phrase for my resume to describe my period of modeling?

Friday, December 30th, 2011

Question by layhoma2004: Looking for a phrase for my resume to describe my period of modeling?
When you have a behind desk job in a firm, you can write about it on your next resume for job hunting. But let’s say I have been a model for several years and wanted to apply for a white collar job. My years of experiences as a model can be described as ” on the job training ” or ” PR- like work”. What is the best description I can use to write on my resume in applying for a business job. A short and brief phrase.

Just so you cant get caught out I’d probably put –

“AGENCY NAME
Modelling/PR
List of duties: liaising with other agencies, co-workers and companies in order to maintain interest and professional relationships. Organisation of product portfolio. Researching companies and company representation. Etc.”

Maybe not an answer you were looking for and you could tweak it to suit you but it’s better to be honest rather than caught out and blurting out “I was just a model!” at an interview if they ask you what sort of PR you did.
—————-
Also something like this will lead their questions for you – “give us an example of your portfolio organising?”
Response: “After researching the company I was hired for, it was both the photographers choice as well as my own to decide which pictures were a) suited to the client and b) would encourage more work at a later stage.”

To be honest, as long as you tell them you want experience in a more practical and permanent line of work and can explain why then they probably won’t pay much attention to past roles unless it’s a highly qualified and/or demanding role.

Best of luck.

How does a young girl get into the modeling business?

Sunday, August 14th, 2011

Question by postingnut2005: How does a young girl get into the modeling business?
My daughter is 12 years old and would like to try modeling. She is often told that she should try because she is tall for her age, 5’7″ and quite slender. Takes after her dad. Anyway, she went to one of those Barbizon presentations, but it seems like a lot of money for “training”. Is this necessary? We live in the Chicago area. Please respond only if you have knowledge on the subject. Thanks!

Modeling is not “on the job training”. It’s not “PR like work”.

Modeling is modeling and if that’s what you did, you shouldn’t want to “spin” it as anything else. Put it like this:

XYZ Modeling Agency April 2006 – May 2007
Worked as a fashion model on runways and in print ads.
Met schedules and deadlines
Came prepared for each job as needed. i.e. bringing makeup, etc.
Projected the look and brand of each job in a professional manner

Question by Annice H: i need help breaking into the modeling scene…?
ok i am really interested in modeling, but i just dont know where to begin. like seriously where do i start? im pretty sure i have what it takes, i am 5’9”, slim with a nice figure and great personality, i just cant find anywhere to use it. i have gone to things i hear about on the radio that claim to have connections but when i get there it turns out to be just something for money, saying they need to “train” the model for like $ 2,000 and after that training they will find work for you. but i dont have money for that, i would just like to know where to begin, if anyone knows please share with me!

Don’t bother with places that require you to pay money for ‘training’, it’s all a scam.

Your best bet is to send pictures to a few legitimate agencies. They don’t need to be professional; just take a few photos in natural light, with no makeup and wear a simple, form-fitting outfit. If the agency sees potential, they’ll contact you with more information.

On occasion, agencies will have scouting events that you can attend and possibly get noticed. Be careful with these, though – make sure they’re from real agencies and don’t ask you to pay ridiculous fees.
