If you haven’t been able to score a design job or clients on your own, then creative placement agencies might just change your luck. Just by signing up and meeting with a recruiter in your area, you can have someone on your side. Placement agencies make their money by matching creative talent with companies who need your services, so they have a vested interest in finding you work. Whether you prefer a solid 9-5 gig, or want to stay on the freelance side, placement agencies and recruiters have the connections and expertise to connect you to a job that works for you.
In this episode, we pick the brains of Diane Pirritino and Jamaal Crowley, who work as recruiters for 24Seven, one of the USA’s leading creative placement agencies. We talk about how you can increase your chances of getting hired, what skills are the hottest, and what people who are hiring are looking for. Listen, take notes, and you will have a leg up on your competition!
Diane and Jamaal also stick around to help us answer this week’s listener question about internships, and for our “Do Yourself a Favor” segment.
