Talent Agents and Scouts
Talent agents act as representatives for actors, writers, artists, models, and others who work in performing and visual arts, fashion, and advertising. They look for clients who have potential for success and then work aggressively to promote their clients to film and television directors, casting directors, production companies, advertising companies, publishers, catalog companies, photographers, galleries, and other potential employers. Agents work closely with clients to find assignments that will best achieve clients' career goals.
