Testimonials

TorchLight is a professional matchmaker helping D.C.-based companies find the right talent to fill critical full-time, part-time and contract (freelance) marketing and communications roles.

“My team has used TorchLight for at least five mid-to-senior level searches which resulted in a successful hire each time.  Heidi and her team conducted a thorough search to find only the most qualified prospects thereby cutting down time we spent meeting candidates who were not a fit.  The TorchLight team stood by us every step of the way — from scheduling the candidates to checking references and coordinating the final offer details.”

Client, Kathryn B., Manager of Recruiting

“Of all of the search firms I have worked with over the past 20 years, TorchLight has, by far, been the most responsive and effective in meeting my staffing needs. TorchLight’s recruiters have consistently demonstrated an uncanny ability to identify exemplary niche marketing candidates, in very tight markets, for multiple positions on my team. I highly recommend TorchLight, without qualification, for all of your search needs — you will not be disappointed.”

Client, Suzanne T., Director of Marketing Operations

“TorchLight’s deep connections in the marketing world make them invaluable to an organization looking for the best marketing talent. They get to know their clients and do more than just match the skill set — they also match the culture. I have found their strategic guidance to be consistent and excellent.”

Client, Ann C., VP of Business Development

“TorchLight’s team takes the time to get to know and understand an organization’s capabilities and culture.  They have the expertise and insight to help shape job descriptions based on their knowledge of the organization and the types of candidates that will fit in with the culture.  And, they stay with the client every step of the way — from the first interviews to placement and beyond — making our relationship a true partnership.”

Client, Lauren N., Senior Director of Marketing

“TorchLight’s team has a knack for pairing candidates with both the right position and organizational culture.  Their instincts are spot-on and they take a genuine interest in helping each of their clients succeed, develop and grow. I highly recommend TorchLight and would be pleased to work with them again at any time.”

Candidate, Julie K., Senior Marketing Manager

“TorchLight found me through a mutual friend on LinkedIn. Though I was happy in my current position, we met and talked about some other possibilities — none of which was quite right for me. A few months later, I experienced a life change and let TorchLight know that my parameters had shifted. They came through, and I have been in my current position for 7 months and couldn’t be happier! The recruiters at TorchLight listen to their clients and candidates and make the best match for both parties.”

Candidate, Sarah W., Senior Manager of Consumer Insights

“TorchLight did an amazing job working with me on my recent career transition. They really got to know me and understand my goals. They never brought me opportunities that I wasn’t interested in, and coached me against roles that were not a great fit. TorchLight’s team is responsive, helpful and extremely well connected. I highly recommend TorchLight to anyone looking for a wonderful recruiter.”

Candidate, Lisa M., Manager of Website Development & Marketing

 “My experience with Heidi and her team has been fantastic! I’ve worked with large search firms in the past, and always felt like just a number, often getting placed with employers who were not a good fit. But with TorchLight, I felt like I was talking to a friend. They take the time to get to know you and what you’re looking for. They’re also very responsive. I had some concerns prior to starting a contract writing job, and Heidi responded right away, easing my fears and making me laugh. The clients she’s matched me with have been wonderful!”
