If you can answer YES to all of the following questions, Talent Market may be able to help!
- Is your organization a free-market 501(c)3?
Talent Market works exclusively with 501(c)3 organizations that focus on reducing the size and scope of government and advancing the principles of economic freedom, free enterprise, free trade, property rights, rule of law, and limited regulation.
- Does the opening fall into one of the following categories: entry, mid, junior, senior, or executive level?
Ok, this is a trick question. While Talent Market used to focus on senior openings, we recently opened up our work to include all levels!
- Is the opening a full-time, permanent position?
Talent Market assists with full-time permanent positions. We do not assist with searches for part-timers, freelancers, interns, contractors, or consultants.
- Would you like to launch your search in the near future?
Talent Market works on searches in which we are proactively engaged before the search is launched and we jointly launch the search together with the client. We do not assist with previously launched searches. When you come to us before a search is launched, we can help you put together a solid job description, determine an appropriate salary, understand market trends, and generally save you a headache or three. We’ll also let you know if you’re looking for a unicorn….it happens.
- Would you like Talent Market to manage the search process for you?
Talent Market manages searches for talent. We do not advertise or recruit for searches we aren’t managing. When Talent Market “manages” a search, this means we serve as the initial point of contact for all candidates (and there aren’t different job postings with different contact information/application instructions floating about; all candidates are directed to apply through the Talent Market system). We keep the client organized and keep the candidates informed. In short, managing a search maximizes our work, minimizes your work, and makes the process more efficient!
- Would you still like to be in the driver’s seat when it comes to making decisions about candidates?
Good! That’s exactly where you should be! It is important to note that when we manage a search, the client still makes 100% of the decisions and sees every applicant. If you’re interested in a candidate, we will let that person know you’ll be reaching out to arrange an interview. Or, if it would be helpful for us to phone screen the most promising candidates, just let us know. And, of course, we handle rejections, too! (Thankfully, we had a lot of practice with rejection in high school.)
- Is your hiring manager able to work directly with Talent Market on the search?
Talent Market has found that the most effective and efficient way to manage a search for an organization is to work directly with the hiring manager.
- Are you looking to hire someone who is free-market oriented?
Talent Market’s network is full of people who believe in reducing the size and scope of government, advancing the principles of economic freedom, free enterprise, free trade, property rights, rule of law, and limited regulation. If you’re looking for someone like this, you’ve come to the right place! If philosophical alignment is not important for your hire, we’re probably not the best source of talent for you.
