IQTalent Partners Joins the Startup America Partnership as the First Executive Recruiting Firm

WASHINGTON, DC--(Marketwire - Dec 9, 2011) - IQTalent Partners has joined the Startup America Partnership. The Partnership is a private organization working to help young companies succeed in order to accelerate job growth in America.

The Startup America Partnership convened at The White House yesterday to announce new partner offerings worth hundreds of millions of dollars in committed resources to support and develop startups across the nation.

"Finding the right talent to help a startup grow and create jobs is a major hurdle for young companies trying to scale," said Scott Case, CEO of the Startup America Partnership. "We look forward to seeing our Startup America Firms take advantage of IQTalent Partners' offer to hire the right people to help meet their goals."

IQTalent Partners is the first and only executive search firm to join the Startup America Partnership. IQTalent Partners is offering Startup America Firms free training and consulting services around talent acquisition and engagement strategies. In addition to the free services, they will provide reduced fees for consulting and executive searches that go beyond the free offering.

"We understand the risk in hiring someone into a startup. Each hire in the early stages of development impacts the future of the company. With that said, we don't just look at the skills and experiences of each candidate. We will help you find candidates with the right chemistry and culture fit that will foster increased productivity and continued success," says Chris Murdock, Founder and Senior Partner of IQTalent Partners.
