About Us 2017-04-21T13:09:57+00:00

We are not your typical recruiting firm.

Our Mission

T.I.R.’s mission is to assist Military personnel transition to the private sector and to assist corporations in identifying and matching candidates with the skill sets and experience that provide longtime fits for both parties.

Supported with data from psychoanalytic analysis (evaluation of transference), and one-on-one personal interviews – the T.I.R. pre-vetting match between the candidate and the corporate partner are designed to incorporate science, job skill and personality traits into the hiring process.

Customized Service

We are not a traditional recruiting or placement firm. We are a process improvement firm specializing in Veteran transition into the public sector. There are several competitors working within the placement and recruiting space.  However, the T.I.R. strategy of pre-vetting Veterans in advance of placement is the differentiator from other competing firms.

Job Placement Firms: same business model for decades, no Veteran specialization

Online Placement Service: no one to one candidate contact, no Veteran specialization

Veteran Support

Our customer base includes working collaboratively with the Department of Labor, Veterans Administration, Veterans Outreach Programs, Colleges and Universities and Commercial Organizations to identify and place post-military candidates who align to open job functions within the private sector.

Educating the Political Sphere

T.I.R. is aligned with our Federal and State politicians.  Understating their Veterans’ interests and how those initiatives impact their districts and cities are key strategic planning pieces for T.I.R.  Aligning platforms allows for a consistent message on the state of Veteran affairs to be delivered to the Veteran and private sector client throughout the recruiting process.

Relationship-Oriented

We strive to build long-term relationship with clients, not a single-transition deal. We act as a strategic partner, not just a vendor.

Focused Market

We focus on small-to-mid cap companies (500-30,000 employees), emphasizing our values, coaching, mentorship, evaluations, and relationship building.

Fulfill the Promise

T.I.R. will deliver qualified/skilled candidates on time, and within budget.  We pride ourselves on intensive business acumen, and an understanding of Military Occupational Skill (MOS) transference.
