Digital Agents

Digital Agent Video Chats with Client

Digital agents represent people who have excellent technology skills and/or creative knowledge and market these talents to companies that are in need of technical skills or creative expertise. They may represent both people who want to work on a project-by-project basis or those who are looking for full-time salaried positions. Typical clients include software engineers, Web developers, game designers, and animators. Companies also come to digital agents seeking their help in finding employees with appropriate technology skills and/or artistic skills.
