Vitamin of the Week: Chelsea Stewart (Dallas)

Vitamin of the Week:...

Chelsea Stewart

Before becoming a star Vitamin T agent, Chelsea was a both a marketing manager and a manager of business development in creative staffing. So she knows when making a creative match there’s always three opinions to take into consideration: the talent’s, the client’s, as well as everyone else involved.

It’s all in a day’s work. And Chelsea loves it.

Check out a small part of what’s going on inside her amazing brain by reading her answers to our 7 Quick Questions.

  1. What made you want to work at Vitamin T? What do you love most about working here? The company model here is so incredibly different from any other company I’ve seen. From the work environment to the business processes, I love the creative and flexible atmosphere that’s been created. I also never get bored! Every day is something new. Because of both, I think I’m about ten times more successful here than anywhere else.

  2. Best creative/digital event in your city? The Front Porch Conference! My focus and passion as a recruiter is UX/UI and front end development. This is an annual conference in Dallas that brings together both local and national development talent. There are multiple workshops throughout the two days that discuss the latest tech trends and coding capabilities. Not only is this a great networking event, but also a great learning tool. It gives us the inside scoop on upcoming trends, which is great to know when having discussions with our clients and talent.

  3. What’s the BEST thing someone can do when looking for a job? Keep an open mind and look past job titles. What does a title matter if the deliverables are what you are interested in doing every day?! :) Also be careful when using resources like Glassdoor. While company reviews can be helpful to a certain extent, reviewers can be incredibly biased. Glassdoor doesn’t recognize the fact that companies change and reorganize; new structures mean that there’s not always a place for everyone. And, of course, there are poor reviews from people who’ve been fired for not doing a good job. It’s much better to reach out to someone who actually works for any company you’re interested in.

  4. What’s your favorite interview question? “If you could outline the perfect job, what would it be? Tell me how you imagine the environment, projects, team, etc.” This not only gives me great insight to where they will be most successful, but also lets me learn about their business culture preferences.

  5. What’s your favorite brand and why? I love APPLE! I will forever be a loyal Apple user and customer. I tried to switch to Android a while back and couldn't function! Apple, you are addicting!

  6. Who is your creative or digital hero? My digital hero is actually one of our talent, Jonathan! He is always ahead of the game and stays up to date on all UX design trends. On top of that, he is always willing to learn and expand his skillset to be more marketable. Did I mention he has a great attitude?

  7. If you had to pick two celebrities to be your parents, who would they be? Will Ferrell and Oprah Winfrey. Will Ferrell is basically my idol. Our house would never have a dull moment and the laughter would never stop, right? And Oprah! Why not? She is successful, rich, insightful, and would probably spoil her kid rotten.
