How is WGI Talent Network different from other freelance platforms or talent marketplaces?
Talent platforms are found all around the world and are saturated with a wide range of ability making it difficult to get noticed. We partner with some of the best leaders at creative companies and agencies around the world to help us vet and curate the WGI Talent Network community. We have curated a best in class exclusive community of emerging creatives. For creatives this means more exposure to companies hiring. For companies hiring it means less time spent searching for the next excellent addition.
How are people selected?
We look for a combination of hard and soft skills. Hard skills should display a strong understanding of craft that strikes a balance of understanding the creative landscape and a strong personal point of view (originality). We also look for people who are problem solvers and self-starters with an entrepreneurial spirit and are curious about the business of creativity.
