Talent Response takes a high-tech and high-touch approach to talent acquisition. We look beyond the resume to evaluate candidates across three key criteria:




DNA - Who you are

Smart employers know that a candidate's DNA—who she is at her core—must be aligned with the firm and the position. Just because a candidate has the "right" work experience doesn't mean she will be a good cultural fit. Talent Response works with clients at the Partner level to gain a deep understanding of the cultural attributes they seek so we can source candidates who will thrive at each specific firm.


Experience - What you've done

There are certain skillsets that can only be developed through doing; those skillsets could include industry expertise or client and team leadership experience. Talent Response leverages its own consulting and technology operating experience to evaluate how a candidate's experience truly aligns with a firm's hiring needs. We speak your language and can determine, for example, whether a candidate's "M&A focus" has been weighted towards opportunity scans, due diligence, or post-close implementations.


Motivation - What your goals are

Understanding a candidate's motivation for leaving his current position is critical to making a successful hire. We dig in to ensure that a candidate's goals align with those of our clients and that each candidate is set up for long-term success. We also promote the benefits of the firm and role to make it highly attractive to the most qualified candidates.
