Getting Hired: It’s not always easy for promotional models to get hired (especially if you’re male), because dozens of promotional models apply to events where only one model is needed. This especially makes it difficult for up and coming promotional models to get hired because, not only are they being compared to dozens of other models that applied, but they don’t have as much experience. **Promotional Modeling Tip: To help gain experience, try volunteering for an event or accepting gigs at a lower rate. Getting Paid: Depending on the agency, it can take up to 90 days for you to get paid. Therefore, before you commit to an event, make sure you are fully aware of the agency’s payment policy and know when to expect the check.
