Vitamin of the Week: Katie Tolle (Chicago)


Katie Tolle

Katie’s LinkedIn recommendations say it all: “Seemingly unlimited energy,” “Incredibly friendly and eager to take on any task,” “Problem solver, multitasker, knowledge source, leader, and eager collaborator.”

Chicago’s creative talent consider themselves lucky to have this agent on their Windy City Vitamin T team. We do, too!

Get a little luck (and knowledge) yourself by checking out her answers to our 7 Quick Questions!

  1. Biggest myth about being a recruiter/salesperson/staffing industry? Sometimes I hear people say that meeting with an agency is too time consuming, that they should be spending their time on REAL interviews. In actuality, our in-person interviews only take 30 minutes and are essentially an introduction / interview to many different companies! We help people get in the door faster and widen their network. We are definitely worth your time, I promise! :)

  2. What made you want to work at Vitamin T? And what do you love most about working here? I wanted to work at Vitamin T because of the team members! I knew only the most friendliest, driven, and trustworthy recruiters work here and they made me feel right at home  from day one. I love the culture and recruiting team, they’re honest, open, and so much fun!

  3. What’s your favorite interview question? "What are the types of places you want to work?" I love this question because it reveals where the talent picture themselves, which can reveal a lot. Also, if I'm familiar with a specific company they're interested in, I can give them the inside scoop and coach them on ways we can get them in.

  4. Who is your creative or digital hero? Actually it’s one of our very own Vitamin T talent, Sonia R.! She is really one of the most talented designers I know. She’s been at a number of our clients and each time they just rave about her work. (In fact, she just went freelance-to-perm at one of them!) Not only is she talented, she has a terrific personality.

  5. In your job, what’s your favorite moment or biggest joy? My biggest joy is when I get to tell my talent about a job offer. It's so rewarding. I love helping creatives find their dream job and hearing about the continued success thereafter.

  6. What app do you use regularly that provides great user experience? Uber! It's easy and fast to use. I can request a ride anytime, anywhere. I also love the feature of being able to split a fare with a co-rider. It's done in seconds. In such a short time they’ve jumped leap years ahead of the competition.

  7. Best creative/digital event in your city? Built In Chicago's Built In Brews. It’s a monthly startup happy hour hosted by different high growth tech companies in Chicago. You get to meet the founders and staff of some great companies as well as have some drinks from Chicago’s best breweries. Not bad!
