All truth about SBA!
It's no secret that we are a young and actively developing successful team. Lately, we have an increasing number of exclusive contracts to the TOP countries of the world. Let me remind you once again that we publish about 30% of all vacancies, due to the most of them can be closed in couple of hours, thanks to our database of artists and hotel staff. The rapid growth of SBA is a pain in the neck for a lot of people and "well-wishers" in every possible way try to "drum up hype" about us.
Usually, we leave such letters without activity, because, as a rule, the authors of these fake-allegations immediately show everyone that they are cunning, they are competitors or working on them , have cosmic point of views or just mixed us up with someone else;) You may see their odd format of communication, incorrect vocabulary, unconstructive criticism, screenshots, etc.
This article I dedicate to all who are looking for reliable contracts and company that will provide support and assistance to its applicants. It just so happened that the inspiration came only now)
✔ There are really not so many worthy companies that offer a really good service, reliable and trusted partner-employers, all government documents and good experience in the field of Entertainment abroad nowadays in the CIS countries. But they do exist, we will gladly share with you all our experience and recommendations on the company's data and managers.
⚠ But, for sure, everyone knows that there are many companies or agents-"scammers" who sell everyone into slavery, do not pay salaries, and generally do not comply with the terms of the contract. We heard millions of such stories, but remember who told you about them?
◆ Most of these people heard these stories from someone else, and these "someone" - from another persons and so on. "Rumour Mill". Half of them have never even been on contracts abroad, because they did not dare to go. Some artists have fallen for the bait of unfair agents due to ignorance or reluctance to "think with their heads" and "swallowed" to temptingly great conditions for working with high salaries, without having read the contract before it and not being convinced of the real existence of the agent.
✔ Therefore, my advice to US - as far as possible, meet personally with everyone (we always invite all the artits to our office), if it is impossible for you , we can talk on Skype, but never finish the business conversation and agreement on communication in social networks without documentary confirmation.
✈ If we talk about the real conditions of the contracts of 2016-17, now both the fees and the working conditions have greatly decreased in quality:
jump in foreign exchange rates;
normous replenishment of professional artists who want to work;
interest in working abroad for artists from Europe (and they have European passports);
the supply exceeds demand (employers understand this perfectly and are trying to outwit: - "If there are artists for $ 1000, then for $ 900 there will be artists too" - and believe me, there are a lot of interested people).
☑ So, if you are waiting for your "perfect" contract, have patience or luck!
I think it's much wiser to go to a contract right now, for example for 1200$, to see the world, meet "useful" and "right" people, to rise your professional leve and earn money than to wait 3-6 months for a job with a salary of 1500$ and, probably, that ain't gonna happen
After all, the salary is far from being the main component of conditions of the contract.
☑ Pay attention to the working condiions (schedule, time, amount of performancies, place, etc.), reliability of your employer (remember that the nerve cells cannot be restored), availability of such conditions as accomodation, food, availability and quantity of dresses, productions, extra sunlighting, charges for transfer and other details.
⚠ But still, for huge amount of people, the main factor remains reliability (which is the main principle of SBA). However, everyone evaluates the situation and makes a choice om their own.
$ If you have money in the first place - you should definitely choose bigger salary and do not think about the possible consequences.
☎ Yes, working through an agency, perhaps you will have a salary a little bit lower, but not always, because TOP hotels, parks, clubs and other employers pay agency services separately because they want to get professional resumes and promos and exclude the possibility of losing their money . The agencies, in their turn, give a guarantee of quality and return of all money, in case of artist's delay to the flight or unexpected illness (we are talking about real agencies).
➣ Surely, a lot of artists work "directly", without the help of agencies. Reliable employers accept such people who already have an extensive experience in this field, confirmed by recommendations of people who the employer already knows or who the employer has already cooperated with.
▼ If you know enough information how to check the reliability of new employer or if you already have "safe places" - then work directly. But for self-search you need a lot of free time, special skills and abilities, from foreign languages to searching lawyers to sign a contract.
▼Look around, all the Internet is teeming with advertisements about work, vacancies with 3000$ salary , blacklists of employers, artists, agents and companies that are updated every day in a geometric progression. But, who is writing and publishing all this?
▼ 70%-80% - people who have never worked abroad and even do not know all the details in this field. If to take a look at their pages you may see there only bright ads with steep working conditions, odd text reviews, pictures, downloaded from the Internet but you will not find there any evidence that these contracts exist. And for most of us it seems there are a lot of job and that you may choose any vacancy to the warm country with huge salary.
So, what about blacklists?
Mostly posts are writen like this: " This is bad company, do not cooperate with them." I am really grateful to those altruistic persons who really publish the thruth, with attached documents and screenshots and, perhaps, it helps other artists not to fall into a trap. But, alas, there are very few such reviews. The most terrible and strange in these groups and discussions is that people even do not want to get to know all details information of thoses reviews and they do not search validation. Person just reads the review and it stores in memory, after that the conversations start from the previous paragraph: - "I've heard somewhere that this is a bad country (the company), there are bigger salaries, and there are less work there, you should not work there" you'll be conned 100%. Turn your head and dig deeper, at the very least, write, or better call the person who wrote it.
And, finally, I would like to say, the choice is always yours: learn, develop, motivate, travel, earn money or lie on the couch, watching your favorite serials and reading ke reviews from unknown people) I remind you that the doors of our office are always open for everyone.
Come to see us!
