Your most effective relationship with a recruiter is realized when they become a true extension of you, your department and your company. Since they are the front line of communication between you and the market, you will get the best results when your recruiter understands the “Why?” behind the “What” that you are looking for and can act as a true partner in overcoming common challenges that hiring managers face.
Avoid starting off on the wrong foot on the new position you are hiring for. Make sure you are focusing on the work you NEED to be performed versus what you WANT to see on the resume.
Would you like your hiring success rate to increase 50%? Focus on what you want accomplished and steer clear of any vague questions.
It’s much easier to conduct a search when you have a solid understanding of what you can get at what price. Even better if you’re aware how your company and opportunity compares to others.
Finance & Accounting Hiring Manager Testimonials
When we have a need to fill an open position, Doug and the staff at The Talance Group always understand what we are looking for and find the candidates that have the skill sets that meet our requirements. They never push unqualified candidates at you.
Chevron Phillips Chemical Co.
I needed to hire three new Revenue Accountants to fill open positions. I needed 2 Senior Accountants and 1 entry level. We took applications from several recruiters. Only the Talance Group sat down and met with me to find out exactly what type of person I was looking for and what skills were necessary to meet my needs. Every candidate that was submitted for my review was extremely qualified and better prepared when they were interviewed. We filled both Senior Accountant vacancies with candidates submitted by the Talance Group. I would use them again and would highly recommend them to anyone.
Working with Jennifer Drake is a refreshing experience, both as a candidate and a client. Jennifer is excellent at guiding the candidate through the entire process, including offering valuable tips and potential Q&A’s for the interview and beyond. From the client perspective now, Jennifer continues to find the “right” individuals to fit our company’s growth needs.
Private E&P Company
I gladly recommend Tim as an excellent recruiter of finance and accounting professionals. Tim takes the time to get to know hiring managers, company culture and key details of position openings so that he can recommend the best candidates. He is then selective in the candidates put forth for consideration. Tim is responsive though deliberate in finding highly qualified candidates to fill even the toughest position openings.
The Talance group is run by a leadership team that promotes a first class recruiting organization. They treat the candidates like the individuals they are and work hard to make sure to understand their needs. The Talance team understands the chemistry in a firm has to be a good fit with a candidate and client alike to ensure a successful placement, and they go to great lengths to understand the dynamics of the firm they are recruiting for in searches.
Doug and his group have been extremely helpful, often on short notice, at identifying and putting high caliber people in front of us for senior positions. Doug, in particular, has been insightful, patient and extremely diligent in identification of the right person for the spot we were trying to fill. I wouldn’t hesitate to use them anytime I need personnel assistance.

Simply put – she has the guts to deliver where most will fall.
