April 16th, 2012 was the day I knew my life was going to change. I was given the opportunity to start my new career with The “IT” Factor with Alycia Kaback. I always knew I had the potential to do great things with my personality and now it was finally here with scouting!!
By the end of my first day, I knew I had to be on my game and I wasn’t going to let anything stop me. After a successful and exhausting first couple of days, I realized how much work this was going to be. I’ve had enough jobs to know that I needed to listen and learn fast because in this industry you can’t let the grass grow under your feet!
In order to be successful in this business, you need help from every department in the company. Everyone needs to work as a team and look out for one another. I found it refreshing to see how the employees interact with each other and have each other’s back (for lack of better words). I got to see firsthand how everyone chips in and does their part, including Alycia!
From the first day I noticed how much respect Alycia has for her staff. She is a savvy business woman without a doubt but even she realizes that she needs everyone’s help to maintain a successful and growing business. She is no nonsense and wants the job done right, as she should. Her diligence, discipline and loyalty to her career proves her record of success.
The industry is competitive and cut throat but at the same time it can be thrilling and rewarding! The most exciting thing I’ve learned so far about the company is the process of how it all begins…from being scouted, to the open call, to the exit interview, to being signed and finally getting work. Of course, it’s not that simple but that’s the essence of it.
I have to mention Goldy, who absolutely blows the audience away with her straight-forward presentation during open call. She tells it like it is and in this business that’s the only way. You’re either in or you’re out!
I think of scouting as an adventure! It makes me so happy knowing I’m giving someone the opportunity to make something of themselves. Because as we all know, life can be difficult and mundane. I am one of the lucky ones that can wake-up every morning and honestly say, “I have no idea what today will bring but whatever it is, it’s going to be sweeter than yesterday!”
