Talk about a speedy trail! Last week we opened applications for Art Advisors.
Over the course of 1 week, we received almost 70 applications! Sh#t!
Emily (Kollecto's Chief Art Advisor) & I were super impressed by the candidates, some of whom had experience at companies like:
While we considered resumes in our decision, we put a greater emphasis on our case study assignment!
To apply, each candidate had to review a sample client profile. Then, they had to find 3 pieces of art for the client & curate a short write-up for the client about the art.
So our decisions were based on:
We also asked candidates to fill out a survey about WHY they applied to Kollecto. Almost half the candidates filled it out & I was amazed by the results.
We closed applications on Wednesday & gave people answers about next steps on Thursday. I consider that to be pretty darn fast! You know those companies that never respond then you apply for a job? Well, we decided not to do that.
In my next post, I'll introduce our new group of Art Avisors & show you the awesome art they picked!!
