You need to get a bead on an acting agent's connectivity. Any successful agent is well connected to the industry, and you, as a potential client, have a right to know with whom they work. Ask how many casting directors they know personally, and which ones they do the most work with. It doesn't hurt to ask if the acting agent is connected to any producers, directors, and writers. If your agent is very well connected, it's a good chance s/he will send you for auditions or interviews that will land you a job more readily.
