“I have worked with dozens of talent agencies throughout my career and none compared to Strategic Talent Resources. They communicated with me with during the entire process and answered every question I had.They walked me through each step from sending my resume to the Hiring Manager and prepping me for the interview, to making sure I was comfortable once I was offered the position.  After my onboarding, they checked-in with me to make sure I was happy with my role. Overall, I really enjoyed working with Strategic Talent Resources.”
