The Illumination Bureau podcast is a podcast produced by Creative Portfolio, and co-hosted by Catherine Lang-Cline and her business partner Kristen Harris.
What makes this podcast special is that Catherine and Kristen bring two different perspectives to the podcast conversation. Ultimately, they have two different audiences listening to their podcast, their business clients and their talent clients. They weave their podcast content into addressing both targeted listeners.
Portfolio Creative provides access to creative talent to fill their business clients' short or long-term contract needs. Catherine works with business clients and Kristen works with the creative talent.
Each brings a different perspective to each podcast's topic, which is a great balance for each episode.
This is how they describe their podcast...
Even before this all started, we were creative people, hiring people, interviewing people, or being interviewed ourselves. With all of that life experience, we’ve acquired a lot of knowledge about how the job market works (and how it doesn’t work).
- We have learned what makes a successful interview from both sides of the table.
- We have learned how to present ourselves and how we wanted to be presented to.
- We have learned how to find a job you love or an employee that you would soon love.
- We have learned a lot–but what good does all that knowledge do if it’s trapped inside our heads?
So we decided to start the Illumination Bureau podcast to share all of that information. To help candidates get hired and for clients to find success in hiring the right person. Everyone is making a first impression at one time or another; this podcast will share information about putting your best foot forward. And, sometimes, it is just not a fit. We’ll also help you move on and find the job or candidate that is.
We’ll talk about finding the right job, moving up the ladder, mentoring employees for leadership, side hustles, contract employees, and so much more. There is a wealth of topics we can cover and, if we don’t know, we’ll bring in an expert.
Find out how it all started, and where the podcast is going in the ever-changing workforce planning and creative talent arena.
