How to Get Hired as a Stripper
Getting a job at a stripper isn't as difficult as one might think. A lot of would be
exotic dancers mistakenly believe that applicants must be blonde, busty, and gorgeous.
The truth is most adult entertainment venues desperately need a variety of looks, and will
gladly invite you to audition.
How to Get Started
The very first item on your job search is to figure out the type of gentlemen's club
your comfortable working at. There are several types of places; including: topless, nude,
and bikini only strip clubs. If this will be your first experience working as a stripper,
it's a good idea to find classy places, with no contact policies. Your best bet is to look
on line and make a list of different clubs.
Many women believe they need to call the strip club and describe their looks and
personality. I would suggest not doing this at all. Managers at strip clubs tend to get
very busy, and have heard it all before. Additionally, adult clubs receive a lot of job
inquires everyday. The worst thing you can do is call the strip club and ask for the
owner about getting a job. It's unprofessional, and highly annoying. Simply call and ask
what time auditions are held, as well as what type clothing is required.
How to Prepare
From the moment you walk through the door to audition as a stripper, you are being
watched. Chances are a manager somewhere in the club can see you on camera. Since you only
get one first impression, make it your best. You might be absolutely smoking hot, but if
you walk in with the wrong attitude your chances are diminished. Traditionally, there will
be a hostess working at the front door. Kindly approach her with a smile and let her know
your there to audition as a dancer.
Don't give attitude or be rude in anyway. You never know if she is dating a manager or
staff member and strip clubs are known to be highly catty. It's also a good idea to bring
your drivers license or I.D., as most clubs have an age requirement. Take it from me,
getting a job as a stripper is completely different from usual job hunting methods. They
are not interested in your organizational or multi-tasking skills. Managers look at the
following traits: looks, body and attitude.
What to Wear
It doesn't matter if your trying to become a stripper at a lounge, bar or club. I
suggest finding a sexy dress at knee length. You want to convey to the manager that you're
classy, beautiful women, worthy of being an exotic dancer. It's always good to give them a
little mystery, before you show them the whole package. My best advice is to wear a pair
of 3 to 4 inch heels. Anything higher can cause unbalance, and a possible embarrassing
fall on stage. Because most strip clubs are dimly lit, wear a red, light blue or white
dress for your stripper audition. Avoid neon colors or dresses which are too tight.
Another item you will want to pay attention to is your hair and make up. Since it's not
unusual for strippers to make several thousand dollars a night, it's important to make an
investment in your audition. Take time to get your hair styled, or make over if needed.
This includes paying attention to your fingernails. All of this may sound a bit much,
however; stripping is a very competitive business. Whatever you do, avoid cussing or
talking about your personal business prior to the audition. If you're hired, there will
be plenty of time for gossip and drama.
