Happy birthday, #livecreativechat!

It’s been a fun year of Twitter chats, so we wanted to ring in our first anniversary with a celebration. After all, what’s the good of working if you don’t give yourself the chance to step back and appreciate what you’ve done?

To help us impart the wisdom of a little self-love, we asked professional creative and host of the Creative Pep Talk podcast, Andy J. Pizza, to join us.

Check out what it takes to feel accomplished in your work – and what you can do to keep feeling that way.

Celebrating Your Accomplishments Q1

We’re proud to have made it to the one year anniversary of our Twitter Chat, which ended with the #LiveCreativeChat Summer Series! And as a company, every candidate placed is a goal accomplished. It’s why we love coming to work!


Celebrating Your Accomplishments Q2

We’d love to bring you more guest hosts like @andyjpizza and keep helping the creative community. We’re also launching new resource guides and a brand new section on Our Notebook! Stay tuned here, and be sure to check out our current resource guides.


Celebrating Your Accomplishments Q3

We put our goals on sticky notes and screensavers – the constant reminders keep us on track. We also like to set a goal date and build a timeline from there. It’s the only way to keep the Twitter Chat running!


Celebrating Your Accomplishments Q4

Break down your goals into parts and start chipping away – a little goes a long way! Keep in mind, though, that achieving goals takes time. Making reasonable timelines and checklists helps you feel productive and keeps discouragement at bay.


Celebrating Your Accomplishments Q5

First things first: know your brand. Involving your creativity from there will be natural! The same is true for doing what you love. If you’re enjoying what you’re doing every step of the way, your creativity will find a way to express itself.


Celebrating Your Accomplishments Q6

You can always step away from your to-do list for a moment. Take a breath, collect yourself and get back to it! If things aren’t coming together, go out and seek inspiration. Blocks happen – check out Our Notebook for articles and resources that can help.


And so begins our second year of the #livecreativechat. We’ve come a long way, but we don’t plan on stopping anytime soon. Come see what’s in store for this year on Wednesday, September 20th at 12pm P.S.T. / 3pm E.S.T. We’ll be helping college students and recent grads with How to Adult: A Chat on Getting from College to Career, and we could use your insight to give back to the creative community!

If you can’t wait, check out our other resource guides on perfecting your resume and portfolio. Until next time!
