Get rid and mask any type of negative emotions

This is your shot at becoming a model, why let your own emotions ruin it?

Act professional throughout the entire OST interview process

The agent might ask you to do a runway walk, picture pose, or anything else that would help them determine if your ready to be a model. Make sure you are ready and able to complete any tasks that they ask of you. When the agent asks you a question, its best not to wait to long to answer, the faster you start to answer with confidence then better.

Leave with a confident, professional, and graceful attitude

At the end of the interview, make sure they see you leave with your head up high, knowing you did well. Even if the agent gives you some feedback, do not take it personally.
