Talent Agents and Scouts
Employment in the arts and entertainment field is expected to grow rapidly in response to the demand for entertainment from a growing population. However, the numbers of artists and performers also continues to grow, creating fierce competition for all jobs in this industry. This competition will drive the need for more agents and scouts to find talented individuals and place them in the best jobs. But this trend will also create strong competition for jobs. Many agents have trouble breaking into the business and holding full-time positions. Many, frustrated by the strong competition, leave the field for other jobs.
