Brilliant Misfits Wanted: The Lavin Agency is Hiring! [VIDEO]

The Lavin Agency is hiring agents for our Toronto and New York offices, and we do our hiring a little differently. We don't just want to know what you've done. We want to know who you are. In other words—we're looking for brilliant misfits. Or, as President David Lavin describes, "the people who stayed up all night talking about politics, economics, art, culture, movies. People who have something to say and want a place to say it." Our employees—much like our speakers—come from a diverse range of educational and professional backgrounds. “One of the questions I ask potential employees," David says, "is: Who do you think is underrated? I don't necessarily care what the answer is, but I do want to know that someone has a critical faculty and a passion they can articulate. That they have the ability to say, This idea is better than this idea—and here's why." If this sounds like a company you'd like to be a part of, please send a boring resume and a fascinating cover letter to [email protected] We're growing—and we'd like you to help us.
