“My partner in Copywriting here at isn’t having a very good luck with her current placement agency. She was very impressed with you and your team and also by the glowing reviews the rest of us that you have placed here, have given you.”
- Mark, Copywriter
"Katy is a fabulous recruiter. She has gone above and beyond for my family. I spent down time recovering from a severe back injury and had serious doubts about commuting or even applying for new positions. Katy stood by me, followed up, and even gave me great advice that led to my swift recovery! Once I felt confident she got me an interview that kept me in the game and led to a contract that I currently love.
My co-workers are fun, the work is inspiring, and the commute is fantastic. Katy and her team even came out to see my off and welcome me to the agency. My team loved the gifts and appreciated her referral of me. Katy really aligned the stars. Thank you so much for your help. If you need a contract or a full time position I highly recommend Katy Smith and Advent Creative Group. Cheers!"

"Katy is an exceptional representative for Advent Creative Group, and for me. She doesn't do the typical get-you-a-job-and-forget-about-you thing. The couple of times I have had a question, she has got back to me quickly. On occasion she will send me an email, asking how things are going with the job. She has visited me at work a couple times to check in with me, making sure all was well.
One week I worked a lot of overtime, and the next week Katy emailed me to be sure that that had been okay with me (which it had been). She is like a breath of fresh air in this industry. I know she is there for me, and her caring is genuine. Katy is a great asset to Advent Creative Group, and she is someone I am very fortunate to have working with me.
Katy was a pleasure to work with, and took much of the stress out of my job search after being laid off unexpectedly. She found a job that was a perfect fit for me, and I couldn't be happier with my current role."

- Greg, Digital Marketing Specialist
"Katy is on top of her game! She is incredibly personable, responsive, and motivated to find the right match for both sides. And when she does think you're the right match... well... she in an incredible advocate to have on your side."
- Al, Marketing Communications Manager
"Compared to most agencies I felt that Katy really cared about finding me the right opportunity. She was (and still is) always in my corner, connecting me with companies I may not have been able to on my own. I felt more confident going into interviews because Katy worked with me to ensure that I was prepared to tackle tough questions, was precise with my answers and provided a clear background of my skills to the client.
She worked hard alongside me to secure the opportunity I now have with HealthPartners and Katy continues to check in with me to make sure everything is going well. She genuinely cares about my well-being, is open and honest in her communication and is easy to work with and approach. Katy has been wonderful to work with and I would recommend her to anyone."
- Cassandra, Project Manager
"Katy is the most thorough, thoughtful and responsive recruiter I've had the pleasure to work with over the past 15 years. She sincerely cares about her clients and always wants to find the best fit for them. She is supportive, informative and even sends tips and reminders. A true rock star!"
"Katy is outstanding when it comes to marketing creative talent, and she really delivers! She's committed to finding the best fit, meeting your salary requirements, and making sure it's a job you can live with. Pleasant to work with and always has a smile in her voice!"
- Susan, Brand and Engagement Marketing
"I had the great fortune to work with Katy when I first moved to the Twin Cities region. After thoroughly inquiring about my interests, skill set, and experience, Katy swiftly located the perfect placement for me in the nonprofit sector. Not only did Katy initiate the placement, but she also actively checked in on me during the first few months on the job to gauge my overall happiness with the position.
I cannot overstate how much I appreciated her personal touch. To this day I am happy in the position, and I am immensely grateful for Katy's efforts. I did not anticipate such a smooth, pleasant job search process as a new resident. I would highly recommend Katy to all young creative professionals looking for positions in the area."
- Chase, Communications and Design Specialist
"I've had the pleasure of working with Katy as my recruiter while I was looking for a job in the advertising/marketing field. Katy is the best recruiter I have ever worked with. She is relentless in looking for new opportunities that fit my needs. I really appreciate that she takes the time to review jobs and only present me the ones that will actually fit my needs and wants, rather than having me try to adjust my needs and wants to fit the job.
She's always very professional, but at the same time friendly and personable. She's the type of person you feel like you've known forever the moment you talk to her on the phone (and not just because she may share your name!). She goes out of her way to make you feel like her only candidate (although I know she's juggling many). She spends the extra time answering my questions and gives me tips about companies that I'm interviewing with, she even takes the extra step to text me and wish me good luck before my interview - an easy, but definitely appreciated extra which other recruiters don't do.
Overall, I really can't say enough about Katy, I will, and have, recommended her to friends that are currently searching for new career opportunities. Great job!"
