Vitamin of the Week: Whitney Westphal (Los Angeles)

Whitney Westphal

If our Los Angeles office seems a bit bright, it’s likely due to Whitney’s sunny disposition. She’s a committed agent who loves to start—and end—each day by connecting local talent with their dream jobs.

If you’re a creative looking for a great gig in the City of Angels, you’re going to want to connect with her.  

So read her answers to our 7 Quick Questions then ring her up!

  1. What’s the BEST thing someone can do when looking for a job? Keep your head up! Job hunting is incredibly difficult. And your dream job won’t just fall in your lap. It takes time, dedication, and a positive attitude. Keep on truckin'!
  2. What most excites you about your work and the contribution you make? What most energizes me about my work is fairly simple: finding people jobs. I know, I know, that does sound like I am a Miss Universe competitor who answers the questions with, "I want world peace," but honestly it's the truth. Helping people find a way to support themselves, have security, and reach their goals is what gets up in the morning.
  3. Why did you want to work at Vitamin T? Walking into the Los Angeles office for my first interview was amazing. People were working hard, smiling, and the energy in the room was almost startling. It was like the perfect work environment, just within reach.... and all I had to do was nail the interview. This is still one of my favorite parts about the job, having a killer team, all of whom I can call my friends!
  4. What’s one important skill every person should have and why? Maybe not a skill per se, but everyone should work to have a high self-esteem. No matter who employs you, what you look like, or any other external factor should alter how you feel about yourself. You are you, and that is that. So face it, embrace it, and erase your negative thoughts and just love yourself.
  5. What tech innovation has most impacted your life? Facebook is the tech innovation that has most impacted my life. Most POORLY! Thankfully I now only use it for networking. Whew.
  6. Name 3 things you think will become obsolete in ten years. I haven’t a clue what will be obsolete in 10 years, but I do hope one of them will be those talking TVs at gas stations.
  7. As a 5-year-old, what did you want to be when you grew up? I am pretty sure at the age of 5 I wanted to be a mermaid. Which is odd considering as I got older, the more of a tomboy I became. And now I’m a full-on metal head. Sorry, Mom.
