Recruiting Services

Dedicated Talent Acquisition

Sustained by talent...propelled by passion.

Since being founded in April of 1997 in Atlanta, GA our core business has been providing quality driven labor and technology support services.  With operations from coast to coast, we have developed clear and measurable processes for identifying and recruiting the right person for each and every position.


It all starts with hiring people who have an innate passion to serve.  We have learned that no amount of training, management or technology can ever replace a truly service-oriented personality and that’s exactly what we hire for!


Benefits of Choosing IST:


  • Personalized Recruiting Plan Dealing with One Specified Talent Acquisition Manager (TAM)
  • Insights from People Who Work Specifically In Recruiting
  • Fewer Candidates to Consider for In-House Hiring
  • Specifically Qualified Candidates
  • Access to Candidates Who May Be Passive Job Seekers or Not Using Traditional Methods To Job Seek Like Social Media
  • Comprehensive 6 point screening process that includes a final interview with the customer representative.  IST only recommends 1% of the employees that apply with our company.

Provide us the role, a salary and a little about your current culture to make sure our candidate is the right fit!   As soon as we receive your information, we source our current pipeline (bench strength as we call it) – These are candidates who are “primed and ready to go.”  For specific roles not in our current pipeline, we will post the positions to multiple sites as well as sourcing through social channels and local networking groups.  We have a presence in 38 major US markets and connections in every vertical.

Put IST’s Talent Acquisition Team to work for you.

Dedicated talent acquisition.

Over 2/3 of Human Resource professionals don’t actually like handling recruiting responsibilities.  They wear too many hats to be able to give this essential activity the attention they feel is necessary.


When you partner with IST’s Talent Acquisition team, you will get a TAM dedicated to you who will take the time to learn your company’s culture and find the right candidate to fill the specific role you need.  One size does not fit all with IST.  We will be a specialized extension of your HR team offering the following advantages:


  • We have experts that know your market and understand what it takes to be attractive to the right candidates.
  • Technologies for hiring change quickly and we stay out in front of the changes to make your strategy competitive.
  • We can bring particular insight into your employment brand to measure the effectiveness and recommend adjustments.
