"The Talent Shop was a great asset in our recruitment of an Executive Director of Food and Beverage. They got it right with the very first candidate. Their referral not only had the right credentials, but was also the perfect fit for our entrepreneurial spirit and to successfully open a new restaurant in a small town."

“Four weeks after The Talent Shop placed our Executive Chef, he has rearranged and cleaned like crazy, created a new menu, and issued employee procedures and policies, all with ZERO push back. And everyone loves him."

Tricia Laustalot - Owner of Denny Bar Company


Jill is a true delight to work with. She was instrumental in filling newly created positions in our organization. Her approach, diligence and tenacity exemplified true professionalism. The entire process was a collaborative partnership, one that would not have been as successful without her guidance and expertise in the premium, luxury hospitality industry. Jill has, without a doubt, helped us establish a solid foundation to take our business to the next level. I highly recommend The Talent Shop for your hiring needs. You will not be disappointed.
