MODELLING JOBS: A SOCIAL MEDIA REVOLUTION

Modelling jobs are finding their way into the strangest of places. Big brand names are bypassing model agencies and using online platforms or social media to scout for new talent. Agencies themselves have been tapping into social media for a while now to scout for talent and last year IMG models ran a global search to find the next big thing via Instagram. So if you're a freelance model looking for paid modelling jobs or want to get signed to a modelling agency, knowing what to do and which platform to use can make all the difference.

FREELANCE LESSONS TAKEN FROM COURSES

Most people associate learning with textbooks and gaining knowledge. However there are a lot of lessons that you can take from a training course to the world of freelancing. Being your own boss sounds like the ultimate dream for some people but the truth is, you will need to apply a wealth of other practices and mindsets in order to really thrive within the freelance world.
