Modeling benefits

There are so many benefits to working in the talent industry, but the underlying thread to all of them is confidence. Even the very first step of building a CMS profile and taking the initial foray into the field will build confidence in your child. Having new experiences, interacting with new people, and learning how to carry ones self will build up their confidence as well.

The first time your child is called for a job, it might seem scary or overwhelming, but with your guidance, your child will become more comfortable with the process after meeting new people, negotiating unfamiliar situations, and expressing their personal style. Learning how to style themselves; including how to wear make-up and what clothing style suits them might seem like an “external” benefit, but the effects go deeper in the sense that they will feel even better about themselves and their work environment. The more photos your child sees of themselves, the more they become familiar with their body, and they feel encouraged to have a good posture and a smile on their face.  Knowing how to present themselves with confidence will be a benefit in anything they do in the future.

Another “external” benefit your child will gain from the talent industry is the ability to express themselves more clearly and articulately.  Voice coaching and elocution lessons are common for those looking to succeed in the talent industry.  Communicating with people on all levels of the business, from diverse backgrounds, nationalities and talent experience will teach your child to express themselves clearly and concisely. Think about how much confidence and the ability to speak well in front of others may benefit your child in school.

Success in this industry typically doesn’t happen in a vacuum.  You and your child will be surrounded by a team of people.  From makeup artists to directors to photographers, the road to success is surrounded with positive working relationships.  Your child will learn from an early age that being responsible, having a solid work ethic, and always treating others with courtesy and respect will benefit their career and increase their confidence in themselves.  This collaborative atmosphere will help teach your child to understand and work within group dynamics, and that cooperation helps get the job done quickly and sometimes more creatively.  Your child will be observing the interactions of all members of the team, and learn that everyone has a role to play in making the project a success.  These are all qualities that will benefit your child as they grow older.

With hard work and a bit of luck, your child will reach the level of work that requires travel; both domestic and foreign. For many, this is the most exciting part of being involved in the business. What’s not to love about unknown places and exotic adventures? The benefits of travel are obvious – experiencing new cultures, learning languages, meeting new friends and seeing places you’ve never seen before – the list is endless. Travel expands mental horizons and builds confidence in a way few other things can. It is easy to make friends for life when you are all together during this new and exciting experience. Being exposed to other cultures will make your child more sophisticated and informed about the world. The connections made combined with the skills and confidence that your child has been building along the way can propel them to new heights in any of their future endeavors.

You and your child may be dreaming of a successful and lucrative career in the talent industry, but even if your child chooses a different path, the positive benefits of their time in the business will help them along the way.
