Vitamin T is excited to announce the release of a free downloadable guide detailing the most effective ways to find and hire creative staff. It can be overwhelming to search for and hire candidates in the creative industry. Busy hiring managers are often trying to squeeze in the hiring process on top of their regular full-time job responsibilities. Vitamin T’s latest white paper “How To Hire Digital Creatives: DIY vs Online vs Staffing Agency” outlines the three most common options for finding a new freelancer or staff member and helps determine which route best fits a hiring manager’s needs. "Finding the best creative talent in today’s highly competitive market can be challenging,” says company president, Susie Hall. “While using a talent agency is an excellent choice for many, it’s not right for everyone. We created this guide to help hiring managers weigh all their options and determine which works best for them."

Vitamin T has just released two exciting new improvements to its online tool for clients called Talent Pool. Through these enhancements, clients will now be able to access these highly anticipated features: Hiring Tracker and Real Time Availability. Now Vitamin T clients can enjoy greater functionality when using the Talent Pool dashboard to identify, manage and access key details about marketing and creative candidates. According to Vitamin T President Susie Hall, the company initiated the new Hiring Tracker feature to increase visibility during the hiring process for its clients. Hiring Tracker allows managers and HR pros to view every step of their candidate searches through Vitamin T. Now clients can review and hire fully vetted candidates faster and can more easily communicate with their recruiter. Tracker organizes all active candidate searches and stores them in one convenient place for better accessibility and management. Hall stated, "No other talent agency provides so much transparency into their hiring process. Our clients get the benefit of seeing every step, from candidates submitted to offers extended. Best of all, they have an actual human backing up the technology to help them along the way." Vitamin T has also released a Real Time Availability enhancement which allows clients to see regularly updated freelancer availability. Knowing the real time availability of freelance talent allows managers to accurately plan for upcoming projects that require the services of creative professionals. Using Real Time Availability helps streamline project planning and avoid the frustration of trying to schedule a freelancer who is currently unavailable. For companies working with various creative professionals on multiple projects, Talent Pool’s new features promise to simplify both freelancer bookings with real time availability and the overall hiring process to build a bench of go-to talent. Companies needing to quickly ramp-up hiring, balance multiple hiring needs across various departments or build out a team will find the visibility of the Hiring Tracker tool invaluable to their hiring process.

Vitamin T and Aquent are in celebration mode. August marks the 4-year anniversary of Aquent Gymnasium, a free online platform that provides online courses to digital, creative, and communications professionals all over the world. Beginning with a single course in the summer of 2013, Gymnasium has grown to offer more than 20 courses and issued more than 6,000 earned certificates to digital creative professionals. As world leaders in creative and marketing staffing, Aquent and Vitamin understand the need for real-world skills essential to the digital industry. According to Aquent Gymnasium Academic Director Jeremy Osborn, "We launched Gymnasium with a simple mission: to deliver the highest-quality, and most practical, skills-based training to our students and to connect successful learners with work opportunities." Aquent Gymnasium Program Director Andrew Miller added, “Our curriculum is shaped by industry data. Coursework is created with client input; and projects and assignments are designed to teach real-world skills." Change plays a perpetual role in the field of digital technology. As digital professionals grow in their careers, they quickly become aware that they lack training and experience in newly-developed skill sets. As Miller asserted, "The constantly evolving technical landscape continues to expose new skill gaps, simultaneously providing new challenges and new opportunities for our students. Our task is to prepare our audience to take advantage of those opportunities." The fundamental goal of Gymnasium is to help creative professionals advance their careers. Because Gymnasium was launched by and maintained by Aquent, students have access to specialized placement services through both Aquent and Vitamin T for meaningful work opportunities around the globe. Vitamin T president, Susie Hall adds, “One of our guiding principles is continual learning, and in today’s rapidly evolving digital landscape, adaptability and ongoing education are critical skills for our talent.” Even though Gymnasium has continually expanded its offerings and improved its technology, it is still committed to offering its online courses free of charge. The only cost to students is the time and effort required to earn each course's certificate of successful completion. ●    Coding for Designers ●    Responsive Web Design ●    Creating a WordPress Theme ●    UX Fundamentals ●    Writing for Web and Mobile Digital pros and creatives can visit the Gymnasium website to see full courses as well as shorter, one hour courses. On any given day, Gymnasium streams more than 30 hours of instructional video. It has provided instruction to more than 80,000 students and helped fill nearly 3,000 professional positions. Students benefit from these courses in a multitude of ways. Not only are they able to build their skills, but many of the projects they complete for their coursework will constitute "valuable portfolio content," according to Andrew Miller. Gymnasium has registered students from more than 168 countries, and includes everyone from industry veterans to newcomers to the digital field. For more information, visit the Gymnasium website, or contact Vitamin T. Vitamin T is the talent agency for digital creatives.

Vitamin T is pleased to be named on Forbes' list of Best Professional Recruiting Firms, a marked achievement for a specialty staffing division only 6 years in business. Vitamin T pairs creative digital talent with local companies and agencies across over 29 cities in 4 countries. Earning the 54th spot on a list of 250 professional search firms is a testament to Vitamin's T's growing prominence as an industry leader. To compile its influential list of recruiting firms, Forbes teamed up with Statista, a leading internet analytics company. This third party surveyed thousands of employees, recruiters, and HR managers asking for their recommendations of up to ten recruiting firms (not including their own) who place employees in roles with less than $100,000 in annual income. They received 20,000 responses, and recruiting firms with the most recommendations were ranked on the list. Vitamin T earned a high spot in the top 250-ranking recruitment firms and was among the very few that specialize in creative or marketing staffing. "With only 6 years in business, we're surprised and delighted to be included on Forbes' list of Best Professional Recruiting Firms," said Vitamin T president, Susie Hall. "We've worked hard to match the perfect digital creative talent to clients' business needs, so we're grateful to hear our effort is recognized by our customers!"

Research published today in Scientific Reports shows that light from RayVio's 293nm ultraviolet (UV) LED is more efficient than sunlight at producing vitamin D3 in skin samples. Tyler Kalajian and his research team, led by Dr. Michael F. Holick, Ph.D., M.D., and supported by Boston University School of Medicine and a Boston University Ignition Award, found that skin samples exposed to RayVio's UV LED for just 0.52 minutes produced more than twice as much vitamin D3 as samples exposed to 32.5 minutes of sunlight. "We tested ultraviolet LEDs from different sources and at different wavelengths. RayVio's 293nm LED showed the most significant potential for vitamin D3 production in the shortest amount of time," said Dr. Holick, a Professor of Medicine, Physiology and Biophysics at Boston University School of Medicine, and endocrinologist at Boston Medical Center. "This study will lead to a new generation of technology that can be labeled as photopharmacology in which the use of LEDs with targeted wavelengths can cause specific biologic effects in human skin to help treat and prevent chronic illnesses." Vitamin D deficiency is associated with osteoporosis, rickets and other metabolic bone diseases and is more prevalent in northern and southern latitudes where sunlight is limited for a significant part of the year. This device for making vitamin D is ideally suited for patients with fat malabsorption syndromes including inflammatory bowel disease and gastric bypass surgery. The research shows that RayVio's UV LEDs could be used for treating patients that are vitamin D deficient. A vitamin D3 producing UV LED device could be used on skin areas that experience less exposure to sunlight such as upper legs and arms and abdomen and back thus minimizing risk for developing non-melanoma skin cancer. The UV LED device also emits a much narrower band of UVB light and thereby decreasing likelihood of skin damage that can occur when the skin is exposed to higher wavelengths of UV radiation. "The potential of digital UV technology for phototherapy is enormous," said Dr. Robert C. Walker, RayVio's CEO. "Dr. Holick's research with our UVB LEDs demonstrates the potential for new applications that can potentially improve and save hundreds of thousands of lives. About Vitamin D3 Two forms of vitamin D are important to humans: vitamin D2 produced by plants, yeast and mushrooms, and vitamin D3 produced by skin when exposed to sunlight or the appropriate wavelength of ultraviolet light. U.S. alone, seventy-five percent of teens and adults are vitamin D deficient. Thanks to the work of the research team and the pioneering work of the Boston University Photonics Center on UV LEDs, we may soon see innovative treatment options like simple integration with a wearable device could aid millions of people." Co-authors on the paper, all from Boston University, are T.A. Kalajian, A. Aldoukhi, A.J. Veronikis, K. Persons, and M.F. Holick.
