This week on the podcast, Michelle connects with Margaret Morales and Jodi Cohen of Tombras to talk about how their agency works and how they find and select candidates. Margaret Morales is the Director of Creative Talent, so she helps find people who can contribute to the artistic needs of their clients. Jodi handles all the talent everywhere else. Tombras employs data scientists to developers, so she is always looking for an array of talent. They tell us a bit about the interview process, how they define things like soft and hard skills, and how important is a portfolio is versus a college degree. Tombras is a 400+ employee, full-service
agency with a digital mindset. According to the site, it is one of the top independent agencies in North America. "We blur the lines between a creative agency, a digital agency, and a management consultancy. Our digital offering is married to the discipline and rigor of our EFFIE-winning strategists and Cannes Lion-winning creative directors. We are united by our philosophy: Connecting Data & Creativity for Business Results."
