Cheers to Pivotal for 6 years of excellence in recruiting!


Pivotal Talent Search

Pivotal Talent Search is the cutting edge of talent acquisition. We do things differently than traditional recruiting firms. First, we specialize in cold calling the most desirable candidates and engaging them to make the switch to your company. That’s right! In this competitive job market, the best employees are likely already employed. It’s our job to find and deliver this talent to you!

Second, we utilize a completely unique pricing structure based on an hourly rate that saves our clients an average of 30-50% in recruiting fees. That’s why we’re the recruitment experience you deserve at a price you’d never expect. Let us help your business skyrocket into the future!

The team at Pivotal are absolutely phenomenal! I had the pleasure of working with Elizabeth, Jill and Ashley and I could not have asked for a better group of individuals to help me secure my dream job. From the initial contact, to the interview process and final job offer... this team was there to offer support, guidance and reassurance to foster an exceptional experience that will give you confidence that you have everyone on your side to champion your desire to grow in your career. The trust and authenticity that they exhibit is absolutely phenomenal. It's also the small things like sending you a text 5 minutes before a scheduled interview to say, " Good luck on your interview! You got this and we believe in you!"... they also follow up after every interview and conduct a pulse check to ensure you are feeling, how you or they can improve as well as how they can help streamline the process through communication, career coaching and to celebrate the wins/opportunities. Simply amazing.

Pivotal Talent Search is a great company to contract if you are looking for talent. While they are contracted, they ask very intentional questions to ensure they can immerse themselves into your culture to ensure they are finding mission aligned candidates. They are also very transparent with their feedback which is super helpful. Lastly, they are quick, dedicated and really work to fill empty spots. We have hired them for two different campaigns thus far, and will continue to look to them for hiring support in the future.
