New York’s premier digital talent agency (that’s us!) is looking for a Talent Scout Intern to help find the most creative and ambitious talent for our clients—highly innovative and smart digital companies, both big and small. We are looking for a talented digital native to come aboard and learn the ropes about talent research.
As talent scout intern, you’ll be scouring the web for high-caliber talent and providing an understanding of specific clients’ businesses in order to jumpstart the recruiting search. Your role also includes thinking about the companies and positions where potential talent for a role might be right now, as well as helping to create a practical overall search strategy.
To do this right, you’ll need to be in constant communication with our talent leads and client leads, and you’ll also be frequently reaching out to potential applicants and helping with the screening process.
You’ll be in charge of making every search strategic and efficient. You’ll soon learn the ins and outs of LinkedIn and our own applicant tracking system (ATS), while also learning proven techniques and methods for finding and qualifying talent as you go.
You’ll know you’ve been a success in this role when you’ve streamlined the process and managed to cut the average time to place people in open positions.
