Frequently Asked Questions from Aquent Talent
What areas do you specialize in?
We represent contract and temp-to-perm/talent bridge in virtually every marketing and creative discipline, from brand managers to copywriters, from data analysts to web designers.
Why should I work with an Aquent agent to find work?
It can be hard for individual creative and marketing talent to break in to large enterprises, since most of these organizations prefer to work through an agency that will handle co-employment and benefits issues for them. Since 1986, Aquent has connected talent with desirable roles at Global 1000 brands. Every day, we place creative and marketing professionals in contract and temp-to-perm positions at some of the world’s most renowned global brands. We know what they’re looking for and how best to position you to get the assignments you want.
Why don’t you have a job board?
Job boards aren’t the ideal way to find the best creative talent. Instead of relying on job postings, we devote ourselves to making real connections with our talent and our clients. We find that the best matches are made by an agent who’s plugged into a specific practice area. You can follow our agents on Twitter or Facebook though to see what in-demand roles they’re placing.
Who are your clients?
A significant number of the Fortune 500 and Global 1000 partner with Aquent for their creative and marketing talent.
How do I select an Aquent agent?
Go to Find Work, pick a location, and then check out the agent's open positions.
What happens when I find an agent?
You can choose to contact the agent by phone, email, or through their social media accounts. The agent will contact you to discuss your experience, interest and next steps, which may include an in-person or video interview.
What if I want to work with agencies and mid-sized firms instead of major brands?
No problem! Just connect with an agent at Vitamin T, our division that’s focused exclusively on placing marketing and design talent at SMBs and agencies.
What if I want to be considered for assignments through Aquent and Vitamin T?
That’s no problem. Just let you agent know, so that once you’re registered with Aquent or Vitamin T you’ll be considered for appropriate roles through both firms.
