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.

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.
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.

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.
Working with the Talance Group has been a very valuable and enjoyable experience. I dealt with them both as a candidate and as a client. Recruiting the employee is one of the most difficult challenges for managers, and I am proud to say that The Talance Group, in baseball terms, is batting 1000% so far—and I don’t expect this to change. Jennifer in particular has been one of the best recruiters I worked with in the past. They’re not pushy and they work with you until they find you the right candidate. Like others, they don’t just send resumes, they send candidates (they actually read the job descriptions!). I expect to continue to work with Jennifer at The Talance Group for many years to come.
Fortune 500 Company
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.
I have worked with The Talance Group as both a hiring manager and a candidate and have been consistently pleased with the impressive results. Their team found the ideal opportunity for me and have placed several excellent candidates in my departments over the years. I truly value the customer service and care they take to ensure the best fit possible.
