Calling all TikTokers, your favorite pastime may just be your ticket to a modeling career!

IMG Models recently announced that it has big scouting plans for the popular social media platform. The international agency, which also represents supermodels such as Hailey Bieber, Taylor Hill, and the Hadid sisters, is no stranger to recruitment on social media. There has been a team dedicated to discovering models on Instagram for the past few years, but the agency sees huge opportunities in TikTok

You’re probably wondering, why would a professional agency search for models on TikTok, which is known for its dance crazes and whacky dubs? Well, it turns out that such personality-driven content is exactly what the agency is looking for.   

“It really reminded me of the early days on Instagram, when we were seeing very genuine content and not a lot of stuff that looked idyllic and probably isn't the real world," shares Jeni Rose, Senior Vice President at IMG Models, with Fashionista.com.

In other words, they’re looking for fresh faces with equally captivating personalitiesand that’s something you can only see through videos. 

TikTok plans have been in the works for quite some time, but the onset of the coronavirus pandemic apparently fast-tracked these plans. IMG Agency currently has nine agents dedicated to finding new faces on TikTok.

If you’re still in disbelief, here’s how the actual scouting process goes:

Once an IMG agent discovers someone on TikTok, they’ll check if the account specifies a link to the user’s Instagram. The agent will then message the user on Instagram through one of the agency’s verified accounts.

If the “potential talent” expresses their interest, this will be followed by an online meeting where the details of the business will be explained. This can even be discussed with the parents of the individual. And if all goes well, the necessary documents will be requested, and the deal is as good as done.

So far, IMG Agency has signed four individuals through TikTok alone. They hail from the U.S., Russia, and France. The agency is currently in talks with over 30 individuals.

That said, do you think you have what it takes to be on top? Just continue doing what you do best on TikTok, and let fate do the rest.

To the Person Who Does Not Know Any 1D Song

By: CJ Reyno

Never in my wildest dream I imagined to meet someone who does not know a single One Direction song or who does not even know, Harry Styles, Louis Tomlinson, Liam Payne, Niall Horan, and err… Zayn Malik. How did you spend your teenagehood without listening to their songs? The disrespect to my #StyPayHorLikSon. My initial reaction, Vas Happenin’?

Since I was 12 years old, that was way back on 2012, One Direction songs have been my official life soundtrip, my go-to songs whenever I feel happy, sad, mad, excited, and etch. I can still remember how people went crazy just to attend their concert here in the Philippines. I must admit, I was one of those. LOL. The group was also dubbed as, “The Biggest Boyband in the World”. They were an era. You really left me in awe when you told me that you do not know a single One Direction song. Their songs are gold. But I was a little hopeful when a new messaged popped up on our conversation, “Hey I know one, Make You Beautiful”.

You do not know how my world collapsed after reading your message. I would like to say that I appreciate the effort, thanks, but they do not have a song entitled, Make You Beautiful, because it is, What Makes You Beautiful. I tried to explain but you said that they are just the same. (Tip: Never fight with a Directioner when it comes to this because we will not let our guards down). No! They are not the same. How can you make this big mistake? LOL. What Makes You Beautiful is One Direction’s debut song. Almost everyone knows this, “you’re insecure, don’t know what for,” ring a bell? The music video of this surpassed 1 billion views on Youtube. On my 21 years of existence, you are the very first person who told me this “I-Thought-It-Was-A-Joke-But-You-Are-Serious” statement.

As a persuasive fangirl, I thought to myself that I should make you appreciate their music, that you should know that it is What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. The group may be in hiatus but their music is and will always remain superior. You are hard-headed lad. We even when to the point where you challenged me to treat so I can make you watch their music video. Am I even surprised that I agreed to this? HAHA. I feel like an agent trying to persuade her customer to buy a property on our company. You do not know how happy I was when you sent me your video listening to What Makes You Beautiful. I felt like I successfully closed a deal with my client. Not to exaggerate but I really jumped because of happiness after watching your video. It was the first message I checked that morning. Thank you for your effort, so much appreciated. Funny how our conversation starts with your innocence on One Direction until it goes deeper and last longer. Up All Nigh conversations which turned to almost Midnight Memories. Ironic how a Directioner had developed an admiration on someone who dislikes her favorite boys? Just like One Direction’s song, Change My Mind, “Never felt like this before. Are we friends or are we more?” I guess, like Liam’s line on Love You Goodbye, “It's inevitable everything that's good comes to an end. It's impossible to know if after this we can still be friends.”

I was happy that I made you listen to One Direction. At least I made you appreciate and made you aware that there is a song called, What Makes You Beautiful, not Make You Beautiful. I am happy that you already found your Girl Almighty. Wish me luck on finding my Summer Love. xoxo, Your Directioner friend
