    How do I apply for a job?

    To complete an application, visit our job board! Once you find a position you’re interested in, review the job description and click “Apply for the Position” at the bottom of the page. The first time you apply, you’ll set up a password-enabled account that allows you go back and update your resume any time you’d like.

    What if I want to apply for more than one position?

    We recommend that you apply to positions that you are qualified for and best suit your skill set. However, you may apply as many times or for as many positions as you’d like. We keep resumes in our Talent Database for longer than 1 year and will sometimes reference our database when reviewing candidates for new positions that match their skills and qualifications.

    Can I submit my portfolio, reel or website?

    Definitely! There’s a section in the application to submit links and attachments to portfolios, reels and websites. This is one of the best ways to display your visual and audio work for us and for potential clients.

    How will I know that my resume is received by TeamPeople?

    When you complete the application and upload your resume, you’ll see a confirmation message. This means that your application has been submitted successfully and received by our recruiters!

    Are there minimum requirements for education and experience? If I don’t have any media or technical experience, can you help me find a job?

    Each position listing will indicate the education or level of experience required in order to be considered for that specific role. Our clients typically require that people we hire have a baseline knowledge of the industry or role though education or experience. However, some clients are open to having someone train on the job. If so, that’ll be indicated in the job description.

    Does TeamPeople have an Internship or Apprenticeship Program?

    We currently hire interns at select client locations. Internships are for those involved in a 2 or 4 -year accredited educational program where credits are received. When available, internships will be posted on our Job Board. TeamPeople is currently planning for participation in the CTA Apprenticeship Coalition. Details will be released by the end of 2019.

    Does TeamPeople have work in my area?

    We’ve hired in all 50 states and internationally! If you’re interested or available to relocate to any cities where we have openings, please indicate so on your application. If the position can allow for remote work or will pay for relocation, it’ll be indicated on the posting. If you’re a freelancer who’s willing to work as a local in select cities in a region, please indicate this on your application.

    How often is your job board updated?

    New, full-time positions and freelance gigs are posted almost every day. However, there are short-term gigs that won’t be published because scheduling for these roles happens swiftly, and we book from our active roster.

    Do you offer positions outside of media production, content creation and AV?

    While we offer a wide range of postions, our core emphasis is media production, content creation and AV. You can see many of the roles we fill on our Roles We Fill page.

    What happens after I submit my resume?

    Our recruiters and hiring managers review applicants in our database on a daily basis and work together to evaluate candidates to interview. We will contact you if we’d like to arrange an interview either in-person, by video or by phone. If you aren’t contacted, your resume remains in our Talent Database for future positions.

    Do you contact everyone who submits a resume?

    TeamPeople makes every effort to contact as many applicants as possible. Due to the large number of candidates who apply each day, we may not have the opportunity to touch base with candidates immediately. We’re focused on filling priority positions first, and we often contact those who meet the requirements for both the position and our client. Our recruiters and hiring managers are the points of contact for interviews and will let anyone who interviewed know the outcome of a position once the job requisition has been closed.

    I’m a freelancer. How does that work with TeamPeople?

    We welcome freelancers in all forms, including LLCs and sole proprietors, independent contractors and incorporated companies. To those we represent, the agreement is non-exclusive so you’re always free to work for other clients while also working for TeamPeople's clients. There are no guarantees of work, but we’re always seeking new talent who could be a great match for projects. The freelance booking process moves quickly, so most freelance gigs are not posted on our Job Board.

    Can you give me some career advice?

    We want you to be successful! Whether you’re seeking advice on how to become a freelancer, how to structure a resume, top interview tips, or other various career and industry topics we’d love to share what we’ve learned. Check out our blogs for lots of advice and meet up with us at upcoming events.

    Is there a fee or cost if you find me a job?

    Nope! There’s never a fee or cost for job seekers to obtain employment or freelance work through TeamPeople. We have long-term contracts with our clients for overall service. As the employer of record, our goal is to find the most qualified and best fit candidates for the job.

    Is TeamPeople like a payroll service?

    TeamPeople is the employer of record for most roles. We are a creative services company offering consultation, recruiting and management services. We conduct full production and contract management and we hire direct full-time roles. There are select Permanent Placement roles that are direct hire positions with our clients. Those are identified at the time of the interview.

    Do you offer medical benefits?

    We offer a full benefit package to regular, full time employees. Our benefits package currently includes paid holidays and paid time off, a Cigna PPO level medical plan, dental, vision, EAP, LTD/STD, life insurance, 401k, pet insurance, a legal protection plan, training and development, and other ancillary benefits. Regular part time employees have access to the 401k and commuter benefit. Benefits are subject to change and are identified at the time of hire.

    Why should I work with TeamPeople?

    your interview.
