I had the pleasure of contracting through the smartdept. inc. for 8 months, during which time they fully supported me and even helped me facilitate a full-time position on the team I was placed. Being a contingent worker can often be stressful, but the abundant resources & communication from smartdept. created a comforting dynamic. From my positive experience, I could not recommend their services enough.

I really liked that my creative consultant took the time to sit down with me and get a feel for what I did, what I was looking for, and simply for me as a unique person, so she could better place me in a job that would benefit me and the company. She always followed through with questions I asked, and she made sure to send a quick hello during the slow weeks.
Micah, Grand Rapids
In addition to the personalized and down-to-earth experience I’ve had from the start, another reason I chose to work with smartdept. inc. was the combined years of experience from the entire team. The fact that both of the Principals have creative backgrounds certainly is a plus as well.
Jamie, Seattle

I started working with the smartdept. inc. almost 20 years ago after the dot com collapse. Right away I knew they were different than your typical placement agency. Other agencies made me feel like a faceless resource to plug into any open slot for their clients. But it always felt like the smartdept. valued me as an asset and was working for me as much as they were for their clients.
