The people I’ve encountered as a recruiter have made my work interesting. Many have become friends and a few have become like family. Most flow in and out of my life as the seasons of their career change. Candidates become clients and sometimes candidates again. Some come back around for coaching and consulting.
After a number of years consolidating old files and a deeply reflective milestone birthday, I’m starting a new journey to document acknowledge past connections and document the creative career paths of people I personally admire or who others suggest. Not all will be designers.
This isn’t about promoting talent I might place. That would be silly because those relationships are my livelihood. Instead, the goal of this blog is to talk about how knowing the right people contributes to successful creative careers.
