Talent Agent Resume

A talent agent resume is written by a person who is looking for a job of managing PR related jobs for the clients - mainly the actors and extras involved in a movie shoot, theater drama, etc. or authors, directors, and musicians.

His main job is to seek talented people whom he could promote in the industry, thus making money with the fees for himself. He is a professional who has well-knit connections in the industry and can get the work done for his clients. For his professional needs, he spends a large chunk of his time in watching theater plays and music performances in order to determine the people who have the potential and can become good clients for him.

A talent agent may be working independently or for an agency. In case of agency, he receives his base salary in addition to a certain percentage of the client's income, depending upon how much business that the client is making for the agency. In case, the agent is working alone, he gets a good commission on the talent's earning. Many a times, it is the talent who comes directly to the agent with the proposal, but this happens when the agent has a reputed image in the industry.
