How to Get an Agent


How to Get An Agent
(or Manager)

Struggling to find an agent? Or want to find a better one?

A bad agent is worse than no agent...

This 13-part course will guide you step-by-step to find the perfect reps for your career!

You're self-submitting, taking classes, posting daily on social media...

There just aren't enough hours in a day to do everything a successful career needs. 🥵

That's why top actors build a team around them of agents, managers, publicists, and more.

Most other actors waste years scrambling to find an agent, any agent, then sign with the wrong one.

Then they lose career momentum and don't book as much as they could.

So what can you do? 🤔

You don't have to spend years spinning your wheels...

There are best practices to find the right reps for you and develop a solid working relationship. 🔥

I got a talent agent in LA! I cannot thank you enough! That course was so good at helping me know how to navigate the meeting, what to prepare, how to end it. I felt really confident in both my materials and my understanding of what to expect 😊. Super excited to keep the momentum going! Thank you Ben and Gedaly for being such a fantastic resource! 🎉🙏

Member Success Stories

It is, to this day, one of the best career decisions I've ever made. I have signed with a great theatrical agency, booked a feature film, and wrote, starred in, and produced my own short that is currently circulating film festivals. I also now have relationships with major casting directors and a concrete game plan to take my career to the next level. I recommend Working.Actor to anyone who is ready to get serious about their career.
