Searchlight references aren’t just a checkbox exercise. We help prior managers and colleagues showcase the most valuable parts of you, so that hiring managers and recruiters get a full picture of you beyond the resume and interviews.
Everyone can be exceptional in their ideal environment. References know what it’s like to work with you, and Searchlight shares this knowledge with your future manager so that they can set you up for success from day one.
