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.

I’ve worked with Doug and Jeff for several years in my volunteer role as the career service director for Financial Executive International chapter here in Houston. Talance Group professionals exemplify the key success factors in a long term recruiter relationship. They have integrity and develop a deep understanding of both the candidate and client needs before making an introduction. Several of our members used this firm with success. At our company and for FEI, Talance Group is on our short list of firms we will use for mid to upper level searches assignments.

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.
Stephan placed me at a job and I subsequently used him to find employees. He is highly confidential and knows his candidates before presenting them. He prepares his candidates for the job interview and is focused on making sure that both employer and employee are happy at the end of the day. I will use him in the future as needed.

President, Crossland Acquisition, Inc.
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.
