What We Can Do

Creative Talent Endeavors applies best practices and methodologies that have proven successful at recruiting top talent, from individual contributor to the C-Suite. The same rigor and discipline goes into every engagement, regardless of level. We offer a bespoke service and introduce talent to companies that will further their career development. Creative Talent Endeavors is proud to be an NMSDC certified Minority Business Enterprise.

QUALITY CONTROL

We find outstanding candidates, quickly, and at a fraction of the cost of other retained search firms. We hit the ground running on engagement and will send a sample of prospective candidates before we reach out to anyone so that we can fine-tune in the beginning. 100% of our clients have engaged us for additional assignments after the first completion.

COMPETITIVE PRICING

Unlike the bigger firms we don’t overcharge clients for administrative costs; our professional fee structure is based on cash compensation for each position. We also offer an option for a monthly retainer with a smaller placement fee.

SPEED

Our proprietary process involves identifying the candidate that our clients will eventually hire in 30 days or less. We define our success by placing candidates within 75 days of the initial engagement.
