Before jumping in head first and filling in your details read through the application carefully. By understanding what is asked of you from the application you will feel more confident with your answers and less hesitant. Take in all the information and research where necessary to gain a much stronger understanding of what is asked of you.

Fill in the Application Correctly

The next step is to actually fill in the form correctly and to the best of your ability without errors. By typing slowly and precisely no spelling errors will be made, which is crucial as a tiny mistake could lead to not being hired. A missing digit or letter could hinder your chances as agents or employers can not contact you. When asked a question answer truthfully including all relevant details such as your full name, date of birth, phone number, email address, shoe size etc. If unsure of a spelling make sure you check Google before submitting.

Upload a Professional Photograph

Fashion model applications usually involve uploading images, which could either be a simple headshot and full length body shot or a selection of portfolio images captured at a photoshoot. The company will usually state their stipulations and it is important that you follow their requirements. The images need to be to a high standard and professional to give the right impression. No selfies or photos socialising with friends please as these kind of shots will look amateur.

Double Check Each Section

Always double check what you have entered to ensure that all your personal information is all correct. It may be worthwhile asking a friend or relative to check the application to ensure that there are no errors. A fresh pair of eyes are extremely useful in this situation.
