    Say I took up a modelling contract offered to me aged 17, and modelled through early twenties, would it undermine a corporate career?

    Not necessarily, could be seen as an extra accomplishment; it really depends on the type of modelling it is

    Assuming it's not glamour modelling or anything it shouldn't in theory. That said you'll be starting in the job market later than everyone else and people do have pre conceived ideas about models (thick, vain, etc) which may mean you have to work a bit harder to overcome them and prove yourself.

    It really comes down to what you want to do in the future. There are probably a few roles which might see it as a negative, but the reality is it is unlikely to do you any harm.
