Vitamin of the Week: Monika Jedrzejek (Chicago)


Being an identical twin, business development director Monika Jedrzejek has never had an issue finding the perfect match.

That’s probably what led her to spend the last 10+ years making great creative matches at agencies and companies all over Chicago.

Even though that wasn’t one of the questions we asked her in our 7 Quick Questions, Monika still has a lot of good stuff to share!

Of course, if you need to know more—or are looking for creatives in the Chicago Metro area—give her a ring!

  1. What’s one question a candidate should always ask in a job interview? “Why do you love working here?” You should always find out what your interviewer loves (and maybe doesn’t like so much) about your prospective workplace.

  2. What do you love about working with creative talent? I'm always really inspired by their creative perspective. It’s so amazing to find out what made them decide to choose a particular direction on a project, what their inspirations were behind a campaign, etc. Makes every day interesting.

  3. One important skill every person should have? Listening! That is, knowing how to truly listen to someone and not just hear them. It’s an invaluable skill.

  4. What’s a word you’d use to describe your team? No doubt about it: EXPERIENCED!

  5. What tech innovation has most impacted your life? Texting. I know it’s not exactly new, but when I think of a technology that impacts me on a daily basis, texting is it for sure. It allows me to consistently (and seamlessly) stay in touch with my family, friends, and peers. Pretty amazing.

  6. If you could have dinner with one person living or dead, who would it be and why? Okay, I’m going to have to get deep on this one... I would have to say God. I said it was going to be deep. I’d ask him why we are here on earth? What’s our purpose? There’d be an awful lot to find out.
