Vitamin of the Week: Craig Tate (Atlanta)


Craig Tate

Craig is never too far away from Atlanta’s best creative talent (in fact he’s texting an amazing UX Designer about a job in this very photo.)

His greatest joy is matching up great people with jobs they love.

We’re ecstatic to have him as a Vitamin T Agent. And even more ecstatic  to present him as this week’s Vitamin of the Week!

Check out his answers to our 7 Quick Questions. And if you’re looking for a great creative job, give him a call!

  1. What made you want to work at Vitamin T? And what do you love most about working here? What made me want to work at Vitamin T? Lots of things! The fact that I get to be the CEO of my own desk. Knowing that I’d get everything I needed to do to become successful. Getting to connect with great talent every day. What truly makes me love this job is the satisfaction that I'm a "Matchmaker Ambassador." Helping creatives find the clients who love their work is an amazing feeling

  2. What’s your favorite brand and why? Apple has got to be my favorite brand, hands down. What intrigues me is how they can take very complex ideas and turn them into simple, stunning devices like the iPhone, iPad, etc. It’s no wonder their competitors consider them the brand to beat.

  3. What do you love about working with creative talent? I thoroughly enjoy sitting down with creatives and reviewing their portfolios. Taking time to truly understand what they do and the processes they take to achieve their ends is such a great part of this job.

  4. What’s your favorite interview question? “Tell me about a time you made a mistake that had a significant impact to the company/your team and what you did to correct it.” It gives the candidate a chance to show they’re human and let me know what steps they take to learn from their mistakes (unless, of course, they deny ever making one!)

  5. If you had to pick two celebrities to be your parents, who would they be? Will Smith would be my father and my mom would be Heidi Klum.

  6. Best creative/digital event in your city? Not to brag (too much) but our Digital Rendezvous is a pretty hard event to beat. We’ve even had superhero Jared Spool host!

  7. As a 5 year old, what did you want to be when you grew up? A better dancer than Michael Jackson!
