Our Story

Our passion to help others succeed has led us in a path to become Recruiting Advisors. In Talent Acquisition, as a recruiter, when you are a consultant to your customer you are usually known as a Talent Advisor. We created Recruiting Advisors to help share knowledge and help your entire recruiting team become better at serving their customers with the best tools, process and training.
