Getting To Know You
If you are interested in working for Brainstorm Creative Resources, we ask that you download and complete the one-page questionnaire labeled “Tell Us About Yourself” in our Download Center. Please e-mail the completed questionnaire to email@example.com, along with your resume and at least three samples of relevant work you completed during the last two years. We will respond within 36 hours.
The Interview Process
Our in-person interviews usually last about two hours. We will talk about your academic history and past work experiences and journey together into the future, as we discuss opportunities for professional growth that might be available to you. If you have most often worked in a hands-on writing, design or production position, we will review your portfolio and ask you to demonstrate your skills by completing a computer-based evaluation. We ask that all candidates come prepared to recommend three professional references.
On-Site v. Off-Site
On-site or off-site: The choice is yours. Some of our clients require that all temporary assignments be completed on-site, while others understand that certain projects can be completed from a remote location. Let us know where you prefer to work; we will do our best to match you with opportunities that fit your needs.
We talk with employers and employees about rates every day. We will be happy to share with you what we know about current salaries in the creative and editorial marketplaces. While working for Brainstorm Creative Resources, you can expect to earn an hourly wage that is at least equal to that which you earned in your last full-time position.
Brainstorm Creative Resources pays on-site temporary employees each week for work performed during the previous week. At the end of each week, you will present a completed timesheet to your supervisor and request his or her signature. The signed timesheet authorizes Brainstorm Creative Resources to pay you for services rendered. Provided you fax your timesheet to us by 11am on the Monday following each week you work, your check will be included in that week’s payroll. Please visit our Download Center if you would like to view or download a Brainstorm Creative Resources timesheet.
Our payment and billing processes are independent. Payments to temporary employees are not dependant upon our clients meeting their fiscal obligations.
We know that if we do our jobs well, you are going to enjoy the temporary assignments you find through Brainstorm Creative Resources. If you become interested in working in a full-time capacity at the company we have assigned you to, please let us know. We will discreetly talk with your supervisor about the possibility of your joining his or her team. If the feeling is mutual, we will play an active role in helping you transition into your new full-time position.
Let’s Stay In Touch
Your relationship with Brainstorm Creative Resources will begin with your interview.

And by no means does our relationship have to end with the successful completion of your first temporary assignment. We encourage people we meet through our staffing service to remain a part of our family once they are fully employed.
