Hi Florence - :-) I ditched using standard recruitment agencies in this job search and it's been one of the best decisions I have made in a while. I am really looking forward to starting.
Don't lose your infectious joie de vivre, honesty and integrity, it truly makes you stand out in an industry full of charlatans and narcissists. Whatever you choose to do in the future, you will most definateley succeed.
I spoke with Kasturi and Jas, they were both very nice and friendly but also very professional.
With their questions, they helped me understand what I really wanted and needed in order to pick the best job for me.
Kalina Trifunova, QA Automation Engineer
From adapting my CV to fully preparing me for the interview, my dealings with Talent Point have been first class and I have already recommended them to my colleagues.
Paul, Lead Application Support
Bethany Price's help was vital along the way. She knew when she had to intervene and when to let us discuss some details directly, which made the communication between the different parties very easy.
Her tips for the different interviews were also key to the success of the entire process.
Definitely, providing much more value than what I have experienced with other recruiters.
Diego Rivas, Product Manager
This was such a positive experience for me because of the invaluable support from the recruiter throughout the process and the thorough information and knowledge of the company.
Pre-interview questions were asked in preparation and my strengths and weaknesses were called out in advance.
There was a professional and communicative approach. Thank you Duncan!
Diane Prempeh, PMO Analyst
James and Victoria helped me a lot. James explained to me exactly what the process involved and what the role was, and the steps that were going to follow.
Victoria was really helpful in preparing me for the interviews and being so friendly and relaxed.
I believe that Talent Point knows the perfect person for a perfect position.

London Tech Week (#LTW) 2018 has just kicked off, promising another week of intriguing deep-dives, wonderful round-tables and plenty of networking opportunities.
Every full stack .NET engineer who knows React and can build deployment pipelines for Azure, didn’t know these things in the not too distant past. When recruiting, it’s critical that we acknowledge this and build it into the career goals of those we wish to hire. To do this successfully though, we must screen on something recruiters don’t – potential. Potential in engineering terms is usually measured by proactive learning or involvement in communities.
In Part 1, we spoke about some of the extravagant interview processes tech giants go through to secure top talent. It works, they still have great engineers knocking at their door. However, are lesser known companies always going to lose out to the “Big Boys” for the best tech talent?
Rapidly scaling start-ups can sometimes be (mis)guided by following the mentality of hiring like the big tech giants – think Facebook, Google, Amazon. Their convoluted, seemingly cunning and lengthy interview process can be a real inhibitor to scaling and growing a company.
