We didn't expect to do this job either.

So we know a thing or two about finding the unexpected.

We’ve all had previous lives. At agencies, start-ups, architecture firms, dive bars – you name it. But we all found recruiting. Why? Because it brings together our unique, seemingly random superpowers in a way that no other job can.

Maybe that’s why we have a knack for finding you the ones that no one else has. Let us put our superpowers to work to for you. Chances are we’ll find the one you didn’t know you were looking for.

The perfect one.

-Daniel Arenas
Creative Director

Having Dana and You & Them in my corner was my secret weapon, freeing me to focus on presenting myself and my capabilities, and not get caught up in the nitty gritty of job searching

-Adrienne Katz
Experiential and Creative Producer

Dana had an intuitive understanding of all the creative puzzle pieces that shape my background (which I’d like to add was no easy task..). She was able to connect the dots when I felt like I was only following them and immediately honed in on opportunities that I was excited to pursue.

Courtney Grace Peterson

I met Dana when I was considering a significant career transition...Dana accomplished the impossible for me and I cannot put into words just how grateful I am.

There aren't many recruiters I will give my phone number to, Dana is one of them.

Dana and her team at You & Them are reinventing what it means to be recruiters. They do the hard work of curating clients and specialize in unique opportunities that are hard to come by on your own.

- Andy Hekimian

Her approach to get to know me first ensuring she could recommend jobs she thought I would be a good fit for was incredibly helpful - the first interview I went on I fell in love with the company and am now employed there.  

-Benji Kagan
Business Development Manager

The best way I can describe Dana’s talent is as if she operates on another frequency — with the insight and direction that took me exactly where I needed to go not only professionally but creatively and personally as well.

- Courtney Grace Peterson

Most importantly for me now, the level of creative talent that You & Them represents is extremely high. I fervently recommend these amazing folks for any recruitment needs  

-John Kapenga

Dana and her team were an absolute pleasure to work with and a completely different experience from what I've had with other recruiting agencies.

These people listened. Carefully. I looked forward to our check-in calls and always hung up feeling more whole and more resolute.

If this was yelp, there would be 5 stars here.

-Nina Amjadi

Whenever a friend says that they feel stuck or that they need a new gig, the first thing out of my mouth is always 'Don't worry...I know exactly who to intro you to'

-Rajiv Lahens

We decided to partner with Dana's team (You & Them) in 2015 to find the glowing unicorns of the creative and digital industry. Not an easy task to stow upon anyone but You & Them had no issues taking on the challenge.

-Nina Amjadi
Partner & Managing Director

You & Them not only brings us talented people (who are a perfect culture fit for our agency), but also offers strategic advice that is valuable in and of itself.

Dana (and her team) has an uncanny ability to quickly understand our needs and introduce us to "that one" candidate that we end up hiring.
