Dreaming of strutting down the runway? Well, you can now fulfill it by kick-starting your modelling career via TikTok! Yes, you read that right.
This international modeling agency has been scouring the popular social media platform to look for potential recruits. And it’s not just any other talent scouts for it’s the same agency that currently represents Hailey Bieber, Taylor Hill, and the Hadid siblings! Now, how about that?
TikTok models, where you at?
What you consider as your favorite pastime during this quarantine can actually get you to be part of IMG Models. There has been a team assigned to search for aspiring models on Instagram over the past few years, but they are now turning to TikTok for huge opportunities.
As it turns out, IMG is now on the lookout for personality-driven content that shows more of what a talent can bring to the table aside from their physique.
According to Senior Vice President at IMG Models Jeni Rose, “It really reminded me of the early days on Instagram, when we were seeing very genuine content and not a lot of stuff that looked idyllic and probably isn’t the real world.”
Girls and guys, they are in it for the substance!
As unbelievable as it may sound, they actually shared the process for the public to know that this is not something to pass on!
The moment an IMG agent fixed its eyes on someone on TikTok, they’ll check if the account connects to the user’s Instagram.
He/she will then message the user privately via Instagram DM using one of the agency’s verified accounts.
If the user displayed intent, this will be followed by an online meeting where the details of the business will be explained. It can even be discussed with the parents of the individual. After formality and a few documents, consider it a sealed deal!
Sounds exciting right? Best of luck when doing those dance craze and whacky dubs now! We’re rooting for you!
