Staffing Services

Intern Referrals: TIC operates a virtual Fellows and Associates program, managing over 240 volunteers around the globe.  Many of these volunteers are college students, veterans, transitioning professionals and others who are looking for a new career opportunity.  They are all vetted and interviewed in advance in order to be accepted into the program.  The interns form a high-loyalty network and can be leveraged for free, rapid referral of new talent to your company.
Full Service Headhunting: Many critical positions are extremely difficult and time-consuming to fill. We take the time to learn your business in order to fully understand your culture conduct a search for top talent to want to work for you immediately.  This is hands on for us, the equivalent of outsourcing your recruiting efforts.  While this is our more expensive staffing service, it still saves you money by eliminating the need for a full time recruiter on your staff.
