Ila at Pivotal Talent helped me not only get a job, she helped provide support throughout the process. I wasn't expecting such actual care and thought throughout the process including checking in to see how I was doing as a person instead of just another number. She was prompt with answering and was diligent throughout as the line between me and my now employer!

The team at Pivotal Talent Search are the ultimate professionals in assisting with an important candidate search. They are very communicative and a pleasure to deal with. They were able to furnish us with a number of qualified candidates for a recent search, ultimately landing someone who is an ideal match for the position. I dealt mainly with Erica and Meghan who I would highly recommend!
My candidate experience working with Samantha Ayers of Pivotal Talent Search was exceptional. Not only was the role she presented relevant to my experience, but she was very thoughtful in explaining to me why she felt I was “the” person for this company. The process was straightforward and transparent and I both interviewed and accepted the role in record time. Highest praise to Samantha and the Pivotal team.
