What Employers Want: How to be the Pick of the Litter Learn the real scoop on what employers look for when hiring in the creative industry. Creative Agency Owner Kate Ertmann, Vizify Creative Director Jason Blackheart, Global Creative Director at Thunderhead.com Matt Adams, and Senior Recruiter for Knowledge Universe Sara Stowe provide insight through presentations from their perspective followed by a panel discussion led by Steve Potestio, partner of Mathys+Potestio.
Mobile Developer: Right now we’re particularly on the lookout for an expert developer in one (or both) native mobile frameworks: iOS or Android. The right candidate must have two+ years of developing mobile apps professionally.
Production Artists with retail or sports apparel background: Or graphic designers who are (genuinely) stoked about doing production work. These are generally onsite, 40-hour weeks that require a sharp attention to detail, and a designer who is open to feedback. Jobs range in experience required from 2-7 years. Past retail or sports apparel company production examples required.
UI/UX Designers: What you should know: how to Wireframe, web design best practices ideally with mobile UI, data visualization, and knowledge of current design trends. These jobs can be full time or temporary in nature and vary in skill level from intermediate to guru.
Interactive Designers: All levels, entry to expert, with at least 2-3 years of experience working in interactive agencies or in-house design departments. This is not a print designer who is looking to transition, only designers with experience working in interactive.
Developers: We could go into a huge list of required languages but it’s faster just to say… if you’ve developed any current marketing or advertising related site/software/or mobile app, and you’re looking for your next project, we’d love to hear from you.
If any of these sound like you please get in touch. If these sound like your friend, have them get in touch. If your friend knows someone who fits any of these, have your friend’s friend get in touch. If you’re a unicorn painter, don’t get in touch, but keep on keepin’ on. Oh, and do you want the stained glass unicorn from our office?
