What people are saying…

“Razor sharp.”

“I would recommend The Talent Group in a heartbeat. (And I have!) They get to know their clients and candidates so well, you feel as if you’re accessing inside information. Add to that their razor sharp assessment of the current state of the industry, their knowledge of what’s hot in the marketplace, and their ability to make you feel as if you are the most important person they’ll speak with that day, and you have a professional you can entrust with your future success. Need a candidate? Need a job? You need Elyssa and The Talent Group.”

“Uncanny ability”

“What makes a good recruiter? Industry knowledge, diligence, good listening skills, excellent prep work, accessibility, endless patience, a good sense of humor, not to mention the uncanny ability to match client needs with candidate skills and cultural fit. The Talent Group recruiters have all of that and then some. They’re great to work with and genuinely care about their clients and candidates. Whether you are hiring or looking, The Talent Group will be a great choice for you. I recommend them whole-heartedly.

“A welcome advantage.”

“Elyssa at The Talent Group is hands-down the best recruiter I have worked with; she consistently goes above and beyond. She had extensive knowledge of the positions and companies she presented me with, and took the time to gain insight into me, my skills and my goals to make sure that there was a true match. She is incredibly responsive and supportive, making a point of providing any contextual information about the company and people I interviewed with, which gave me a welcome advantage. She found an absolute match of a position for me. I am looking forward to working with The Talent Group again, either for my own future job search or to help me hire for my new department>”

“Awesome insight”

“After being laid off for the second time in the ad agency business, I was lucky enough to quickly secure a contract position for 6 months. Throughout that 6 month period, The Talent Group team worked with me to find a client side marketing position (always a tough transition). Elyssa worked with me through multiple opportunities, gave me awesome insight and input before each interview, and eventually presented me with a perfect career opportunity. I’ve been in the job that they recommended for a year and a half and it has been a great career move. I highly recommend The Talent Group as a recruiter for any marketing professional.”
