Posts: 1 anyone ever gotten work from them?

I signed on with; a company that supposedly places computer graphics, retouchers, animators, app designers and creators with clients. A job or temp agency if you will. YOu submit a resume and samples and then you receive regular mailings about available jobs.

I don't see many retouching jobs I'm right for. I don't have a massive load of commercial experience but I do great work for myself and my photo biz and I love retouching for beauty work. I'm great at it. I have the samples to prove it and I did send in my stuff. I know there's a huge line of people who've worked for agencies and companies and magazines, etc. who will have the jacket that appeals to a big company.

BUT the other day I get an email , which is obviously part of a mass mailing to everyone...saying, "I Need a Beauty Retoucher Right Away!" I was online when it came in and responded instantly saying, 'Yes, I"m free, is there any other info you need?"

Never heard back and I wrote the contact person there to ask what happened.

She apologized and referenced the many responses they get. THey can't answer everyone.

But that got me to thinking-if we're all in a database, that means we have to be tagged for what our skills are. THen when a client calls, you as the hiring person / recruiter searches the database for people with those strengths and either forward the candidate info to the client or ferrets it out , picks someone and then sends the chosen one to the client.

Why would a company which deals with a database, lots of talent, very specific jobs....why would it not only not contact you if you have that skill they need for an urgent job but also send you the job notice via a mass emailing to everyone on their database?

WHen I asked the recruiter lady about this her response was to apologize for my confusion and that she was removing me from the mailing list...AND the database! Wow.

Has anyone here ever gotten work through Artisan?
