Best bet is to use the casting calls feature (above) both to place your own calls and to respond to calls that models have placed.  You'll also want to browse the models within your market area on a regular basis and send a private message to those whith whom you specifically want to work.

One hint:  models tend to be broke so they tend to be a pretty unproductive market for paid jobs for photographers.  But they can be a great help in developing a portfolio that will help you to sell your services to folks that can pay.  TFP can be your friend, especially if you approach it with an attitude of cooperation with a colleague rather than one of giving or getting services for free.  The unhappy trade situations we see in the forums tend to be the ones in which one party or the other thinks "free" rather than "trade".

All IMHO, as always.
