How Does Your Service Work?
We help creative talent find meaningful temp and temp-to-perm work. The first step is to connect with a local recruiter, who acts as an advocate to represent you both to our internal teams and to clients, presenting your profile to opportunities that match your skill set, interest, and experience. We have an in-depth screening process that includes a phone interview, face-to-face interview, portfolio review, appropriate skills assessments and ultimately, orientation to our service.
Once on an assignment, we pay you directly and weekly, and get you set up for all the perks we offer our talent. We handle all invoicing and collections with clients, so you can focus on what you do best.
For freelance roles, we work hard to help you stay busy, repackaging your work and presenting you to additional opportunities as your agent (Think Jerry Maguire). For temp-to-perm work, we help you navigate the first 90 days as a freelancer to make sure you love the job before you make a permanent decision.
Throughout the process, our agents help coach you on your career path, prepare you for interviews, and share cool trends and events so you can keep on growing. We’ve even been known to have some sweet swag, says the marketing department.

What if There Is No Vitamin T Office Near Me?
We’ve made it our specialty to work with our clients locally, so most of our opportunities exist in those cities where we have physical offices. However, sometimes our clients are looking for just the right talent, no matter where they live! So check out our job postings, which include those posted by our Aquent brand, which works with Fortune 500 companies in many cities worldwide.
I Applied to a Job but Haven't Heard Back
We work hard to make sure every applicant to our service receives a response and know it’s frustrating not to know what’s happening next.
If you applied to one of our jobs and haven't heard back, it's likely that candidates are still under review for client submission. The agent who posted the job is working hard to help that client find the perfect match and will contact you if the information you provided in your submission matches the position to schedule an interview with us. Ultimately, our clients determine which talent they wish to engage, so sometimes our process is delayed by changes in client business or lack of response.
You may also contact the agent that posted the position to follow up or reach out to an agent in your local market to discuss other opportunities, just in case there was an unforeseen issue that prevented your information from reaching its destination.
