Getting Started
About the Book
In this year’s guide, you’ll find starting salary ranges for more than 100
interactive, design, marketing, advertising and public relations positions. The
figures in the Salary Guide are national averages, but they can be adjusted for
more than 130 U.S. markets using the local variance figures found on Page 11.
The salary ranges represent starting compensation only, since factors such
as seniority and work ethic make ongoing pay difficult to measure. Bonuses,
incentives and other forms of compensation, such as benefits and retirement
packages, also are not taken into account.
The Most Authoritative Resource
We collect information from various sources, including:
• The thousands of freelance and full-time placements made through our
branch locations
• Insight from our expert recruiting and staffing professionals
• Exclusive workplace research we conduct regularly among advertising
and marketing executives throughout North America
• Our own comprehensive analysis of current and future hiring trends
We publish a new guide every year to ensure our data reflect the most recent
employment trends. Information from the Salary Guide is so well-regarded that
the U.S. Department of Labor’s Bureau of Labor Statistics has used it when
compiling the Occupational Outlook Handbook.

Tips & Tricks: Hiring Hints
Finding top creative talent can feel like searching for a needle in a haystack –
or a term in a word search game. Are you equipped to uncover the diamonds
in the rough?
Understanding hiring trends can give you an edge when recruiting potential
employees. Following are several to consider:
Reinforcements are on the way. As creative teams take on more projects,
managers recognize the need for extra support to help with heavier workloads.
They are bringing in freelancers in order to access specialized skills and keep
projects on track. Employers also are filling full-time positions when they identify
an ongoing need.
It’s tough spotting top talent. Despite high unemployment rates, finding expert
creative professionals remains a challenge. To help uncover in-demand talent
(e.g., designers with extensive digital expertise or marketing professionals with
social media and web analytics proficiency), hiring managers are tapping their
professional networks for referrals and partnering with specialized staffing firms.
Employers are moving faster. Managers are still selective when hiring, but once
they identify candidates with the precise skill sets they seek, they are moving
more quickly to extend job offers. In some cases, they are offering perks, like
sign-on bonuses, extra vacation days and telecommuting options, to further
entice applicants.
Brand revitalizations are widespread. Many businesses are eager to refresh
their brand identities to reflect new product and service offerings and keep
their customers engaged. There is strong demand for professionals who can
steer and manage overall brand strategy, as well as bring ideas to life via digital
and traditional media.
The healthcare sector continues to grow. Strong overall growth in the
healthcare sector is fueling demand for professionals who can perform regular
assessments of customer requirements and preferences, as well as emerging
technology trends, and adjust marketing outreach as necessary. Creative
staff also are sought to develop and implement niche campaigns targeted to
patients, prospects and trade associations with unique needs.

options it wouldn’t otherwise have.

When companies are considering making full-time hires, they often bring in
candidates first on a freelance basis. This allows them to observe performance
and fit over an extended period. Managers can then assess the professionals’
suitability for full-time roles in aspects ranging from technical skills to their ability
to mesh with the company culture and work effectively with existing staff.

A wisely chosen mix of freelance and full-time staff provides maximum
flexibility in any economic environment. Permanent employees form the core
of the creative team, and interim staff augment their efforts on an as-needed
basis. Project support professionals also can provide access to skills unavailable
in-house and not needed year-round.

A Year-Round Advantage
Flexible staffing models are not simply an alternative to full-time hiring.
Increasingly, firms recognize that introducing freelancers at higher skill levels
can be a key component of their year-round staffing strategy.

Flexible staffing models that supplement a core full-time workforce with skilled
freelancers can be an ideal solution for businesses hoping to avoid the cycle
of hiring and layoffs that often accompanies a downturn. Using this approach,
companies can convert a portion of their fixed staffing costs into a variable
expense tied to actual workload highs and lows.

As companies attempt to control costs, they often look to cut the size of their
workforce. However, staff reductions commonly leave firms under-resourced
once conditions improve and workloads begin to rise again.

Office Locations
In any business environment, companies need flexible staffing options to

We believe there is no substitute for the personal touch when hiring. Technology
tools may help identify potential hires, but they won’t tell you about the person
behind the profile. We take time to understand the unique needs and office
cultures of the businesses we serve, and then we select professionals with skills
and work styles that best align with those organizations.
How else is TCG different from other staffing firms and hiring resources?
We can find a skilled professional to match your needs. We leverage the size
and strength of our team to find experienced creative talent for our clients.
Our alliances with top professional associations and organizations, including
AIGA, the American Advertising Federation, Graphic Design USA and HOW, as
well as our status as the exclusive Career Partner of The Wall Street Journal,
also provide us exposure to top creative talent.
In addition, our recruiting and staffing professionals, most of whom have prior
experience in design and marketing, possess unique insight into who can excel
at your firm.
We can lead you through the process. We guide you through every step
of the hiring process: We can help you determine your staffing needs, set
compensation levels and handle hurdles along the way, such as addressing a
potential hire’s counteroffer. Communication is our specialty.
