      How to Get Hired

      We asked Talon Professional Services for some inside information on how to get hired at the organization. Here is what they had to say.

      What key characteristics tell you a prospective employee will be a great fit for your company?

      Talon’s C4 culture is paramount to our success.  People who naturally embody the ideals found in our C4 cultural document typically have the greatest chance of being successful in our organization; people who care, who can communicate effectively, can challenge one another to be great, and who know how to celebrate accordingly.  In addition, people who thrive in our industry are competitive, outgoing, and have a relentless drive.  

      What can prospective employees do to get your attention?

      Simply put - prospective employees can get our attention by contacting us and showing us what they're made of!

      Are there any positions or types of candidates you are particularly focused on hiring in this coming year?

      Talon never hires for need.  When we identify someone who we feel will excel in our culture and as a part of our team, we hire them.  Most of those people are hired to be Talon Recruiters or Account Executives.

      What should interested candidates do to find out more and get started?

      If you would like to explore a career at Talon, please reach out to our C.O.O., Joe Kelly at and let him know what interests you about Talon.
