Job Description for Talent Agent

A talent agent acts as a representative and go-between for a creative individual or group and prospective employers. The talent agent helps secure paying jobs for clients and usually helps negotiate the amount of pay and other incidentals that clients will receive. Talent agents are perhaps most commonly associated with representing actors and actresses, but they also work with musicians, singers, writers, directors, and other creative professionals. The agent and clients are typically bound by a mutual contract in which the agent pledges to find satisfying work for clients, and the client promises to pay a percentage of money earned (usually around 10%) to the agent.
