How to Become a Model for Kmart

Save

Being a model for a clothing line can be a great job, one that is full of excitement. Even being a model for Kmart can be a lot of fun and can lead to a successful career. However, like everything else, this takes a lot of work and dedication to the craft of modeling.

  • Perfect your modeling skills. Be sure that you have the right walk, and that your face and body will photograph well. Remember that there is a lot of demand for models of all races and sizes, especially for a department store like Kmart. In order to find out if you'd be a good fit, visit their website. Look at the pictures that Kmart has put out, and realistically compare yourself to the models that they use. Also, look at their weekly fliers and see if you believe you'd be a good fit.

  • If you have an agent, talk with him or her about getting you a casting call for Kmart. Usually, your agent will be able to get you into the casting calls for the larger department stores. Tell them that you would like to model for Kmart. Your agent will have a better idea of what types of models Kmart is looking for, so if they tell you you aren't a good fit, you should believe them. They will be able to contact the Kmart casting director directly to see what types of models they need.

  • If you do not have an agent, now would be a good time to get one. If you live in a large city, you can get an agent by looking in the local paper for agent calls. You can also get an agent by doing a website search for agents in your location, finding out their requirements, and then completing the application process. Many times, agents will attend events such as talent shows, open call auditions, and other modeling events. Attend these events with your portfolio in order to attract the attention of agents. If you live in a smaller area, you might need to travel to a big city to find an agent. Attend agent casting calls, and contact agents who are looking for new clients to represent. The internet, local newspapers, and modeling agencies themselves are great sources of information for finding agents who are accepting new clients.

  • Once you do get an agent, talk to them about modeling for Kmart. Keep in mind that as a new client you might need to do a few projects that they would like you to do first. Often, your agent will have you work up a good portfolio before you apply to be a model at a major store like Kmart. However, if you have a good portfolio or are a natural talent, you might get hired right away.

  • If you do not have an agent, it can still be possible to become a model for Kmart. Many times, Kmart and other department stores will have open casting calls. In this case, you will be able to read an announcement. Often these can be found at Kmart stores, local newspapers, or local talent agencies websites. There are often casting calls listed on sites like Craigslist and other ad sites. These announcements will tell you what type, size, age, and ethnicity the Kmart representatives want in their ads.

  • Research the open casting calls for Kmart that might be near you - keeping in mind that you may need to travel in order to get to one.

  • Attend a casting call and be sure to be on your best behavior, and do your best work! If you don't get hired once, keep trying! There are lots of modeling opportunities out there.

Tips & Warnings

  • You can often have luck with Kmart if you already have experience modeling for a clothing line or department store. Be sure to bring along your portfolio.
  • Always be willing to take a job that is less than you want, if it means you can work your way up.
  • Don't be discouraged if it takes a while to get to be a Kmart model.
