Do those above CD, let’s say a CCO or Global CCO, look at portfolios to hire mid-senior creatives, or are they focused on running the agency?

Is it weird to email those that high up with books? Better luck w/recruiter or CDs?

If they are smart they should be looking at all portfolios all the time (though depends on size of agency, scale of the business, number of hires, etc obviously). I usually set up weekly portfolio meetings so we can go over all the people I think are interesting.

Even in 30 mins we can cover a lot of ground. In bigger agencies the CDs-ECDs look at books. It’s something we as talent people try to prioritize for the leadership creatives so that they are seeing and becoming familiar with the people they’re hiring and interviewing. Or even just making a hot list of people we really like.

I’ve successfully reached out to 3 CCOs who liked my work and put me in touch with their hr but hr dragged their feet on responding and then just said they’re not hiring right now, so that sucked.

It is a change of function and an opportunity to join and define the company roadmap early on. The timing couldn’t be worse but I don’t want to pass up the opportunity.
