CST Is Not Your Typical Talent And Recruitment Agency

Most agencies rush to finalize placements, often engaging minimally with both candidates and client organizations. They typically receive a job description, find a resume, and present it to the company with little understanding of the deeper needs and interests involved.

There is a better way!
