Experience Matters – Talent Management Specialist Where it Counts
Finding talent management that works for you can be a challenge. Talent management is all about connecting you with brands and opportunities. Your talent management specialist or agency should reflect your passion and make your dreams a reality.
Where do you turn when you need new representation and management, and how do you find a new talent management agency or talent management specialist?
As you’re starting out in the entertainment industry, you might feel like you’re drifting along and playing trial and error to find your way. It can be hard to book gigs, find shows, or even get your work in front of an audience.
The best type of talent management agency puts you first.
Your talent management specialist is the one that manages your PR, finances, and schedule, among other things that range from picking up your dry cleaning to getting sponsorship from big brands. That’s a lot to ask of one person.
How to Find Good Talent Management?
The first step toward finding good talent management is to search for managers in your area and determine what fields they represent. After all, it won’t do you much good to have a manager that only represents painters trying to get you gigs as a comic.
Your talent is unique, and your talent management agency needs to take into account your needs and goals. To get a talent management specialist on your team, you’ll first need to identify your niche. After you know what your niche is, you can find a talent management specialist who will help you develop in that area.
The next step in finding a top-quality talent management agency is to get your work in front of a talent manager. Your proposal or audition for a talent manager should be professionally curated and delivered in the most applicable manner. Some talent managers will want to see your work live, while others might prefer a recorded version. Do your research about each potential talent management specialist and cater your audition to the audience. Each potential client will need to be vetted so the talent management agency can determine if they’ll take them on.
You’ll likely have meetings with these managers as you try to determine your professional working relationship. Come to these meetings with all the questions you want to ask and get the answers you need. This is a two-way street; you want to get as much out of your relationship with a talent manager as they want to get from you.
Choosing your next talent management agency can be the first step toward realizing your career goals and dreams. But finding the right one can be more of a challenge than you might believe. You want to be sure your new talent management agency fits your medium and genre, that your audition and application are structured appropriately, and that you get all your questions answered during the meetings.
