Hear from the team :

“From the moment we entered the office for the first day of training, we were greeted by so many amazing people who only wanted to watch us succeed. Even though I was the only member of my training class who had any recruiting experience prior to joining Horizontal Talent, there was still the learning curve of joining a new company. However, the in-depth comprehensive training, as well as the immediate comradery from everybody in the office, made the transition painless.” - Josh Edwards, Technical Recruiter (DALLAS) (Associate Recruiter Class of June '22)

"This program built a fantastic foundation for me coming to Horizontal without any prior recruiting experience. I appreciated all the hands-on learning, opportunities we had to ask questions, and real-time practice we had throughout the training. The time we spent together in training gave insight to the collaborative culture of Horizontal and I felt like I was fully supported and set up to succeed. At the end of the two-week program, I felt confident and was prepared to jump in and start recruiting!” - Lauren Kasten, Technical Recruiter (MPLS) (Associate Recruiter Class of June '22)
