I have been working at VSC part-time
I am proud to work at VSC. I was introduced to VSC 16 years ago when we hired them for our PR needs at SONY. Since then, I eventually married the founder and have helped build the agency as an advisor and now as a part-time partner. I had always been impressed with their work — unlike most firms we had worked with, at VSC, PR meant Proven Results.
I feel so energized by the team in the office. The level of problem-solving and strategy feels totally different than a traditional pr firm and blends into how a management consultant and venture capitalist would help a startup.
The network that VSC has established is vast with both media, founders, and the investment community. Today, I am thrilled to be part of this dynamic team who can communicate on behalf of a diversity of industries across the world. It’s an unrestricted atmosphere where good ideas flow freely and moreover get put into action. Bottom line- it’s inspiring to be here.
Communications or any service industry in Silicon Valley is not for the faint of heart. Clients are demanding, journalists are inundated with hundreds of similar pitches and there’s a need to constantly dig inwards to find new creative concepts. High expectations haven’t changed. It’s the difference between good and great firms.
As a mother of three, my time is limited, and as such have a sharp focus on areas of leadership and development. It’s important that business adapts to the needs of working parents as much as we adapt to business. I do feel VSC supports this with their ‘work from anywhere’ policy on Fridays and ongoing training and development.
I applied online. The process took 5 days. I interviewed at VSC (San Francisco, CA) in February 2014.
phone screen for about half an hour, in person for about an hour, project to be completed and presented, follow up via phone, and then an offer was made via email
