Company Description

TalentFront is an outsourced recruiting firm -- we work with companies that are growing that do not have internal recruiting.  We serve as their talent acquisition team providing everything from job description development to offer support.  Our services include sourcing, screening, coordinating face to face interviews, and helping our client hiring managers make the best hiring decision they can.  We wear our clients' brand and identify ourselves as being a part of the client's hiring team.  After building a recruiting engine for our clients, we then teach them how to build and fuel their own recruiting engine going forward.  

In addition to what we do, we are a startup with a strong entrepreneurial flavor.  We are a remote team, which requires strong communication skills and a belief that colleagues will do what they say they will and keep their commitments.  We ask a lot of ourselves and of each other, backstopping one another all the time.  We are building our business and working it at the same time.  Who we are today is not who we are tomorrow, which requires flexibility and adaptability. If this kind of an environment appeals to you, we hope you will read on.  THIS IS AN IDEAL OPPORTUNITY FOR A STUDENT WHO IS SEEKING TO JUMP START A CAREER IN BUSINESS.
