Vitamin T agent Elise Misciagna always keeps a lookout for fresh digital talent.
This was the day she met an amazing full stack developer, a UX designer, and picked up some Atlantic cod from a nice fisherman. (Which just goes to show, it always pays to keep your eyes open.)

Then read Elise’s answers to our 7 Quick Questions, then give her a call!
- What most excites you about your work and the contribution you make? I love "finding" new talent. It's exciting to discover new creatives, then share their work with my colleagues and clients. Often talent will tell me just how frustrated they get not being able to connect with their dream clients. I really enjoy making that happen for them! I think of it like finding a new band/musician or book I love. I want to share with everyone!
- What is one word that you would use to describe your team? Diverse! It's what I love about NYC as well. Everyone has such different backgrounds and personalities. I'm always learning from them and it keeps life interesting!
- What’s one question a candidate should always ask in a job interview? "How would you describe the work environment here?" Candidates usually remember to ask the basics of the job and what is expected of them, with the employers usually filling in the rest. But making sure that the work environment is a good fit is something that is often overlooked. Making sure you are a good fit in a team environment and at a particular company is crucial to your success.
- What do you love about working with creative talent? I love seeing their creativity first hand. We work with some of the most talented people and I am constantly blown away by their work, creative process, ideas, and adaptability.
- What’s your favorite interview question? "Tell me about a time you had difficulty with a coworker or client and how you resolved it." Everyone has had a difficult client or a coworker whose work style clashed with their own. I like hearing about their communication skills and how they worked through their problems to find a resolution. It also helps to understand their level of professionalism and what types of clients/companies might be a good fit for the candidate.
- What’s one important skill every person should have? Good communication skills! It's extremely important—in both our personal and business lives—to be able to articulate your ideas well and understand, truly, what other people are saying.
- Favorite GIF? Pretty much any Michael Scott gif, but this one in particular. Who doesn't love Michael Scott?
