Advancement Prospects

Assistants in talent agencies gain skills and advance their careers by working closely with agents to learn the ropes. They may be able to read contracts and listen in on phone calls and meetings. They begin to take on some of their own clients as they gain experience. Agents who wish to advance must work aggressively on behalf of their clients as well as seek out quality talent to bring into an agency. Those who are successful command more lucrative salaries and may choose to open their own agencies. Some agents find that their work is a good stepping-stone toward a different career in the industry.
