Our Clients

Higher Talent brings integrity, passion, quality, and attention to detail to each and every client. We believe in the power of personal touch—and of technological insights—and bridge both to reach, engage, and place the right people with the right organizations.

Our client list includes many leading colleges and universities, independent schools, academic medical centers, nonprofits, and industry partners.

We know our clients – culture, objectives, stakeholders – and this is essential to a “good fit.”

We know our industry and are in the vanguard of best practices, including the use of technology and data, and a cross-discipline approach to search.

What our clients say

“Higher Talent’s cloud-based client folder provided us the opportunity to stay connected to the search in real time while being able to do it at our convenience-which was a huge advantage. Mindy and her team found us exceptional candidates that were not looking for new positions. The Higher Talent team was great to work with in filling a very important inaugural role for our institution.”- Sarah K. Cunningham, EdD, Assistant Vice Provost for Student Life Strategy and Policy, Johns Hopkins University
