In today's job market, filling a position with someone who is the right fit can be a difficult task. Many employers offer a dynamic work environment with opportunities to contribute to exciting projects, but it can be tricky to find someone who meets the requirements and also fits in with the overall atmosphere of a workplace.
For employers, posting jobs with RGD is a great way to identify experienced design candidates.

On the other side of the coin, job-hunting in the creative industry can also be an overwhelming undertaking. For designers, finding the right position can often become a balancing act between what skills and experience they can offer and what specific attributes an employer is looking for.
