    Interview

    I was interviewed in the Miami office by the office manager at the time. The Interview process was very brief. They asked basic behavioral questions. Overall they were very kind and the process was very quick. It was only one interview and I had a job offer a couple days later and started right away.

    Model Interview

    Positive Experience
    Easy Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2 days. I interviewed at Wilhelmina Models (Miami, FL) in February 2011.

    Interview

    They have weekly open calls at all of their locations (NY, LA, Miami). Look online to see when they are in your area.

    Height requirement for female models is 5’ 8” and above. They aren't interested in anyone much over 6 feet.

    Dress: little make up and simple/natural dress code. Heels (not too high), jeans, solid color top is better. You don't want to wear ridiculous heels, too much make up, or look like you're going out.

    Bring: Portfolio, swimsuit, and some digital snapshots.

    You'll arrive, fill out a fairly simple form of general info- name, age, height, measurements, previous work, etc., You'll then wait for the receptionist to look over your portfolio, they'll bring it into the back office for review, and they might simply return it to you and say it's not the look they're going for but thank you for coming by.

    If you get past that, an agent will come out, look through your porftolio with you, ask you some questions about your work. Many people lie about their height and age, so they'll often try to verify that too.

    If they are still interested, they'll take some snapshots of you, and ask you to take some in your swimsuit as well.

    They may have you take some test shoots with a photographer on file with them and see how those go. If all goes well, they will sign you, and start sending you out on auditions and see how you do.

    Interview Questions

    • They were very concerned about my age. And asked me in several different ways to verify it.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    You might be able to negotiate with some things, like child models and the parent participation.

    Percentage of commission is not negotiable.

    Difficult Interview

    Application

    I applied in-person. The process took 2+ months. I interviewed at Wilhelmina Models in August 2008.

    Interview

    I went in for an open call. A long line of models waited outiside of the Park ave location for about 10-15mins. I remember taking the elevator upstairs. I handed my book to the receptionist my book and sat down, I was asked to stay in 2009 I signed.

    Interview Questions

    • How old are you? Most agencies discriminate based on age, its a weeding out process. I lied upfront and told the truth in when doing the paperwork.   1 Answer

    Negotiation

    I was told that there was no room for me on the boards but I could come in under the Promo division and eventually I would be promoted if I built my port. I did just that and instead of promoting me they terminated me, good thing I was always proactive in my career.
