Cheers to Pivotal for 7 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!

Right after I lost my last job in December 2023, I started working with Annette Davis from Pivotal Talent Search. My experience dealing with her was excellent. She pays close attention to my job goals and is very professional. She took the time to learn about my background and experience right away, making sure that the job offer she presented fit with my aspirations for professional development.Throughout the application process, she kept me informed with timely and transparent contact. In addition, she provided insightful guidance on interview preparation, which significantly increased my self-assurance.All things considered, Pivotal Talent Search is a great resource for any job seeker searching for a helpful and efficient companion in their search for employment.

Wonderful experience working with Ila and the Pivotal Team, I can't say enough about their professional process. I felt valued from the initial phone contact, providing me with words of encouragement, a Prep Guide to prepare for my interview, and following up every step of the way. Much appreciation, as I was able to get an employment offer after months of searching.
