Ramping up Sales Without an Internal Recruiting Team


LoadDelivered wanted to drastically ramp up their Carrier Sales and Shipper Sales efforts and needed sharp, experienced employees to help them do it. But, they didn’t have an internal recruiting team built out to help hire the talent.

With the goal of adding 6-8 new hires over the next 90 days, they needed a partner who understood the market, knew how to attract top talent and was ready to dive in immediately to help them scale.

We were ramping up sales efforts and, at the time, our recruiting motorhead was broken because we hadn’t been hiring much. We needed really great people but didn’t want to wait around to build a recruiting engine. So, we engaged with Talent Solvers to start getting talent in the door without having to put a big investment in internal recruiting functions.


Talent Solvers was incredibly dynamic, bringing candidates through the door almost immediately.

Partner with Talent Solvers to find Revenue Generating Sales Talent


Ultimately LoadDelivered needed brokers - Carrier Sales and Shippers Sales Representatives. These reps would acquire and move transactional freight on a daily basis. Given the size and stage of LoadDelivered, the reps would need the skills to hit the ground running and the right attitude to fit in with their culture. And, Talent Solvers would need to deliver them in the most competitive freight city in the country during the end of year hiring and job search slowdown.

After developing a good understanding of their ideal candidate profile, the Talent Solvers team immediately started reaching out to old Chicago connections and began networking to create new ones.

I’ve worked with other recruiting firms who say they have a team dedicated to us. Yet, weeks later I’ll get an email from somebody I haven’t met asking (again!) for background on my company. Not so at Talent Solvers. They’re a true extension of LoadDelivered. A recruiter is dedicated and if another needs to be brought in, the entire relationship is managed so that I never have to put in the extra work.

They know who we are, where we’re going and how to pitch us. Their discovery process is so on point. They take the time to understand who we are, what we want and how we want to communicate with each other.

The team has helped us identify problems we didn’t even know were there and chimed in with solutions well outside of the “recruiting” scope. It doesn’t feel like they just want to get another commission dollar, it feels like they want to be a part of our growth story.

LoadDelivered Exceeds Hiring Goals Across the Board!


By the end of the year, Talent Solvers had helped LoadDelivered hire 10 new sales reps! After successfully, onboarding and integrating the new reps onto the team they decided to continue working with Talent Solvers for additional roles.

Talent Solvers has since helped LoadDelivered hire new team members across departments including carrier sales reps, customer sales reps, internal recruiters and executives. They’ve also brought on experienced technical talent including front-end and back-end developers.

I’ve learned a lot about how to recruit and be a great hiring manager by working with Talent Solvers. They made sure our process is succinct and added clarity. They’ve guided us through our growth and even helped us build our first internal recruiting function. Then, they worked with that person to organize workflow and ensure a smooth candidate experience for everyone we interact with.

Honestly, a big part of our success at LoadDelivered and how we’ve achieved it is partnering up with Will and the Talent Solvers team. They’ve allowed us to hire quickly and effectively without compromising the quality of our candidates. Meanwhile, they’ve helped ensure we have a strong reputation in the marketplace and are setup for long-term success.
