We call it Recruiting-as-a-Service
And it’s the subscription box you’ve been wanting
You get to do what you do best
If you wanted to be a recruiter, you would be one. If I wanted to be an engineer, I’d be one. Polaris Talent Inc is a team of recruiters who LOVE to recruit which allows you to focus on what you love, whether that is writing code, attending to business details, or going on sales calls.
We work On Behalf of you
As an extension of your team, we work closely with your Human Resources and People and Culture teams and embed to speak on your behalf. Prospects and candidates will see us as an external member of your team because we focus on giving them a seamless candidate experience as they move through the process with your org.
Our goal is to save you time, money, and your sanity so our flat monthly fee is based on how many open jobs you want us to work. For example, 4 open jobs regardless of the headcount of each is $25,000/month for a 6-month renewable contact. Simple, scalable, and doesn’t burn your runway. That is our promise to you!
We leave you better than we found you
Our goal is to leave your organization better than we found it. In addition to managing your recruiting, we can help optimize your recruiting operations and org capabilities via knowledge transfer and exec coaching. Our team has years of experience coaching entrepreneurs, one of our Founders, Marie Watkins, even received an SBA award for it!

Recruitment is hard. Without question, it is one of the greatest challenges any company faces. Polaris Talent’s approach to recruitment not only ensures the best candidates are matched to your company’s needs, but they also minimize the pain and effort that comes with recruitment. Their focus on truly understanding what your specific needs are, on a position to position basis, is a critical reason why the candidates they surface are excellent matches. They “get it right” from the start. I highly endorse Polaris Talent and I endorse the deep-engagement and deep-involvement approach they take.

Frequently Asked Questions
What is Recruiting-as-a-Service?
We offer a managed services solutions-oriented approach to talent acquisition. It is highly customized to the needs of an individual organization but still scalable and efficient which leads to better hiring outcomes at a reduced cost. Polaris Talent’s Recruiting-as-a-Service approach relieves the burden of handling talent acquisition internally and assures a quality candidate experience that reflects your talent brand and culture.
How Do I Know if the candidate Is Right for My Business?
We know that the best candidates are not looking on job boards or responding to postings. The best talent is passive, and we find them because we have a deep understanding of talent pools in our core areas which are leadership, sales, and technical roles. Once we identify a prospective candidate, they are invited to an informational conversation with us where we share information about the job and company and gain an understanding of their career path to assess alignment and motivation. Any candidate we represent has to be highly skilled, self-aware, and have a growth mindset or we will not present them to you no matter how well they match the job parameters.
What kind of companies do you work with?
We love to work with startups, because we are one, but we also like to work with established companies. Our model seems to work best for companies below 400 people who are growing rapidly but do not have a robust internal talent function. Our sweet spot is technical, sales, and executive roles.
What if my hiring is sporadic? Am I locked into a contract?
Our Recruiting-as-a-Service model is designed for the peaks and valleys of workforce planning or in case of an urgent backfill due to attrition. All of our contracts are month-to-month after a minimum of 6-months and can be started and stopped as needed so you can pause when you’ve filled your roles and re-start when you have more headcount. We also offer long-term agreement discounts if you have high volume, long term hiring to do so that you can rev up your pipeline for max efficiency, and maintain the volume over time.
Do you offer general human resource consulting services?
Yes, in addition to being able to handle the full talent acquisition lifecycle, Polaris Talent offers consulting services in general human resource areas including handbook and policy creation, topic-based employee and management training, and onboarding and termination program design. We also offer people and culture coaching to leadership.

Top Tips for phone interviews from Founder and Recruiter Roma Watkins
For the last few weeks I’ve had the line “I’m still standing better than I ever did” from the Elton John song. At first, I was going a little mad that I could not get it out of my brain but then I realized it was the PERFECT ending song to 2020 and is very representative of how things turned out for Polaris Talent.
