“My overall experience working with TTA was excellent; I would recommend them to any of my colleagues in L&D or Talent. TTA not only did a fantastic job with placing me in a great role, but I also got to work with them briefly from the other side once I began my new job as we had an open order at the time.

The best part about working with TTA, for me, was the responsiveness and clear lines of communication.” – Learning and Development Program Developer

Understanding the Specialized L&D Roles

There are many questions to ask yourself when hiring for a role in L&D. Are you looking for a highly specialized role like an instructional designer with cross functional excellence in needs analysis, communication skills, and working knowledge of different learning technologies?

Maybe you need a more strategic hire to fill a leadership role like a training director who will play a critical role in meeting organizational priorities while having specialization in training?
