We created the on-demand search model to bridge the gap between an in-house team and external expertise. Our system is the future of talent acquisition: an adaptable recruiting partnership where value is high, expenses are low, and results are exceptional.”
IQTalent Partners grew 80% in 2018 and expects another year of record growth during its 10th year in business. The firm’s growing client list includes Amazon, Airbnb, and Bridgestone among others.
IQTalent Partners CEO, David Windley, stated, “Ten years is a milestone many startups never reach. We’ve not just maintained a decade of business, but we are well positioned for the next phase of growth. Our on-demand business model offers an advantage in terms of cost and flexibility versus traditional search firms; we expect to continue disrupting the market as we look to our next ten years.”
