blindfolded.jpg

Getting a job in this market is like walking around blindfolded as you wade through internet listings and work your beleaguered network. While some headhunters and recruiters are total garbage, others can remove that blind fold and land you that big interview. That’s why we’ve asked some top in-house talent directors, as well as some top talent to help us put together, Agency Spy’s “Best Head Hunters In The Advertising Business” list from planning, accounts, to the South, Midwest and back again.

For Senior Talent:

Greenberg Kirschenbaum – a prestigious recruitment firm that specializes in placing creative talent in the advertising, design and new media fields.


Marcus St Jean
– Led by Anne Marie Marcus and partner, Catherine St. Jean, this recruitment firm is considered one of the best.

Dany Lennon at the The Creative Register. One of the hardest recruiters to track down, but once you’ve got the digits (203-227-4721), you’re sure to be in good hands.
