So what do talent specialists and talent managers do? The primary job duties of a talent specialist are to source and recruit talent. This includes following up with candidates, screening/qualifying, scheduling interviews, interviewing, initiating paperwork, and onboarding. Those with recruiting, interviewing, and hiring experience should consider the talent manager position. This role works directly with clients to understand their staffing needs.

A Day in the Life of a Talent Specialist

Beyond job duties, you may be wondering what the average day is like on the job. Find out below!

The day starts off with a cup of coffee and checking emails.

Shortly after, we meet as a team to go over open orders, discuss daily goals, and catch up.

During the meeting, we review current job openings and update our open order sheet.

We use a whiteboard to keep track of where candidates are at in the hiring process.

Now for one of the best parts of the day – extending a job offer! It’s so rewarding to be a part of someone’s career path.

We don’t always eat lunch at our desk, but sometimes it’s nice to have time to catch up on emails. (We’ll make time for a team walk later!)

Interviewing is another exciting part of the day. It’s fun to get to know new people, understand their career goals, and guide them through the interview process.

After the interview is complete, it’s time to update the candidate portal so that we can keep track of all of the people we meet with every day! The portal helps us stay organized.

A ‘winning’ way to end the day – celebrating the results of a friendly office competition.

Fun Outside of the Office

At Pro Staff, we don’t just say that we ‘work hard, play hard’ – we live it! Below are some ways that we have fun in and out of the office:

Attending a co-worker’s wedding

Cheering on the Twins

Breaking up the day with a fun office game
