to be careful of the following method used by some organizations:
have told us that they had gone through the training program of
an organization that had come into the Washington area from out
of town. They paid from fourteen hundred ($1400), to eighteen hundred dollars ($1800)
for the training. At the last class They were told they would
have to get the work themselves, that the organization did not
provide placements for anyone. Once you are trained or have purchased
your composite cards, you must get the work yourself.
have said that as a result of going through the training, and/or
getting photographs or composite cards, they received calls for
assignments from the above organizations. However, the caller
always found something the model was lacking. For example she
was too short, or not qualified for some other reason. The bottom
line, these models never received any work. This leaves the question:
calls genuine? If
the model is not qualified after calling, why was she called at
all. More importantly,
why was she accepted into their program at all!
Agency receives many composite cards from new models who have
gone through programs elsewhere. It appears that after the model
has spent the money on photographs, and composite cards, she must
now spend the time, and the money to GET THE WORK HERSELF.
