At TalentSpark, we’re called in during the tough and sometimes downright messy times. Sometimes that’s to help with a particularly difficult search, and other times it’s to help clients longer-term as an RPO (Recruiting Process Outsourced) recruiter. Each one of my assignments to a new client is exhilarating with a touch of nerves. No matter the situation I walk into, my mindset is the same: how can I add value and continue to raise the ROI for the client throughout the project?

Recruiting Projects Can Change Quickly

On one of my RPO assignments, our client planned, organized, and provided a road map of a project I was to work on. A few months in, the client’s team had some restructuring, and the careful planning became obsolete; still helpful but no longer the path forward. After collaborating with the clients’ leadership, we quickly set the course for a new strategy. TalentSpark trained and prepared me for these situations. I was able to slip into any talent acquisition role my client needed without skipping a beat.

I became the ultimate utility player for my client, shifting from recruiting support, sourcing specialist, full-cycle recruiter, and providing effective recruitment strategies. The results were glowing recommendations, valuable partnerships, and my favorite – fulfilling the clients’ needs.

The Mission Remains the Same

Ultimately, each experience deepens my learnings and respect for my clients. The relationships I build are priceless, and they are what count the most. At TalentSpark, we live our mission every day: to find great people for great companies.
