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… The clients she’s matched me with have been wonderful!

How It Works

Our experienced team of recruiters works with qualified candidates like you to match you with a communications or marketing contract job that fits your experience and other important criteria. Here’s how it works:

  1. Check out our job listings and apply to the role you feel is the best fit.
  2. We’ll schedule a screening call if we feel your experience is a match.
  3. Assuming you fit the role and are still interested, we present your resume to our hiring contact.
  4. If selected, we facilitate the the interview process, until an offer is made and accepted.

If you aren’t a match for a given job, we keep your resume on file (and we really do!) and will get in touch when a role that fits comes in. And if you don’t see a current role that fits, you can submit your resume to our database for future openings.
