Vitamin of the Week: Glenn Scott (Portland)

Vitamin of the Week:...

Glenn Scott
@glennscott

Starting his career in the creative and marketing industry at 17, Glenn has gone on to be mentored by some of the brightest minds in the business and a  board member for both the Portland Advertising Federation and the Association of Professional Design Firms (as well as Director of Business Development at Vitamin T.)

There’s not a lot of people in Portland who know the creative space better.

Which is why you should hear his advice on how to hire creatives and how best to work with a recruiter to fill your roles by checking out his answers to our 11 Quick Questions!

  1. Number one mistake people make when hiring a creative? Being wowed by beautiful work without considering culture fit.
  2. Any resume reading secrets to pass along? You should learn to quickly scan for your top two priorities. It’ll save you an amazing amount of time.
  3. Favorite social network & why? Facebook. It is kind of the central hub of all of my social networks and is the easiest to stay current with our community and my friends, all while getting a healthy dose of pretty pictures.
  4. In your experience, why does Temp-to-Perm work so well in the creative and digital space? Would you buy a car without test driving it? Enough said!
  5. Best ways to work with a recruiter to fill a role? Be prepared, ask lots of questions, and be quick to respond. If you do all that, it’ll go more smoothly than you ever dreamed.
  6. As a kid, what did you want to be when you grew up? A photojournalist.
  7. Digital or creative hero? Max Miedinger and Eduard Hoffmann, the creators of Helvetica.
  8. Favorite online quiz? (And your answer.) The ”What animal am I?"" quiz. I got spider monkey. Yep, seems about right.
  9. Best creative/digital event in your city? I'm pretty partial to the American Marketing Association's MAX Awards. The AMA is a cornerstone in the Portland creative community and a fantastic partner to Vitamin T.
  10. Favorite meme or parody? Anything involving Chuck Norris... duh?!?!
  11. Guilty song pleasure? Erasure's "Chains of Love".
