Any audition can be a scary event, whether this is for modeling, acting or any other job. If you have recently landed yourself a modeling audition then congratulations! Here is a quick guide on how to really shine in your audition and get that job.
Every model needs to believe in themselves. It is always important to have an air of confidence about you when you enter that room. If you do, the employer will surely notice and realize you are something different – which is a good thing!
To win the audition you will need to show that you are worthy, that you have talent. However, the word ‘talent’ in itself is extremely relative, and can depend on exactly what you are good at. No matter what it is that you are good at, make sure that this comes across in your audition. If you are good and carrying yourself show them that, if you are confident let it shine. Just be you, and show them exactly why they need you. It is a great idea to think of something that can differentiate you from all the others who are being auditioned, and who you will have to beat.
Beyond talent your modeling audition will definitely involve looks. This will be specific to what you are modeling for, as each different job could require a different look. Do a little research into this before arriving for the audition to get it just right on the day. Your audition will likely come down to your looks, your talent and also that one thing that sets you apart – what makes you ‘you’.
Never approach your audition with the attitude that you are the best and that you will definitely get the job. Even if you are great, there is still always fierce competition out there and nobody likes anyone who is too sure of themselves in the audition. By all means be confident, but don’t act as if they have already chosen you.
On the other hand, if you feel extremely nervous and under-confident, remember that it is a combination of factors that will win this audition for you. Your personality is what they are really looking to see, and if you can let this show through you will be in with a great shot at getting the job. Just go in there with the right attitude, and remember that everybody gets nervous.
Modeling auditions can be extremely different depending on what you are auditioning for and the individual requirements. However, the above points can easily be adapted to most situations. Just make sure that you do a little preparation beforehand, thinking about what they are looking for and what you can show them about yourself that nobody else in that audition will have. The thing that sets you apart will probably be the thing that gets you the job above all other applicants. And if you are unsuccessful, keep trying and you will only get better. Good luck!
