Online PR News – 21-March-2009 – – 'It’s all about Presentation' when trying to get a fashionable or creative job in today’s economy. At least that’s what a group of recruiters at The Presentation Agency believe. TPA is a an executive search firm that pairs qualified job talent with leading employers in the fashion, beauty, hotel, entertainment and other creative industries. Not only does TPA assist selected candidates in securing employment, it consults a group of style experts to coach candidates on making their best presentation in the workplace, hence the name.
The company also helps candidates polish up their resumes, wardrobe and personal image for more marketability. Feeling there wasn’t a strong link being formed among experienced job candidates and the companies that needed them was the basis for launching the company. “The rising unemployment rates and popularity of relocating to Atlanta makes a company such as ours more needed than ever” says Karen Boozer-Larde, TPA’s Executive Director. “We want to teach people to look more than just their best to get a job and to make sure their resume speaks truthful volumes about their credentials.” She adds that TPA is very diverse in its service offerings from other staffing agencies by having an entertainment division which is responsible for subcontracting out freelance help such as photographers, hairstylists or make up artists for high profile galas.
The company’s expectations of its staff are diverse also. Recruiters are typically those that have worked in areas within the company’s creative markets. “Since these are the people that understand our business and even sometimes set the trends, they are the preferred ones to recruit the talent”. Recruiters are encouraged to dress fashion forward to articulate the industry’s flexibility to dress keeping in mind 'it’s all about Presentation' when trying to land a creative career.
