Being an overly busy small business owner, I find the task of hiring new employees tedious. Imagine my excitement when Georgianne recommended I try her Target Success screening process for finding a new team member.
All I had to do was post the job listing with her attached link to the Target Success assessment. Potential employees uploaded resumes, answered a few  questions pertinent to our business and took the assessment. The best candidates were individually interviewed by Georgianne. Within a week I had a short list of the best possible choices for our shop out of the multitudes that applied. I am happy to report that we indeed hired a great new “rock star” employee!! Best of all, Target Success saved me hours and hours of processing resumes.
Hiring great staff and saving time? ………..Priceless!!

“Pete Pillsbury and Target Success have been integral parts of the administrator hiring process in my district. I value Pete’s integrity, intelligence, and insight. The candidate profiles are in depth, perceptive, and accurate, and provide district leadership with excellent hiring tools. Pete is also a superb coach, and his knowledge of educational systems and leadership, as well as his acumen, experience, and common sense have provided newly hired administrators with invaluable guidance.

“Working with Pete Pillsbury, we have moved to standardize our selection process. We continue to build and develop a common language of “listen” and “look” fors in order to recruit and hire the best candidate for the position. It is critical to put the time, effort and energy into finding and securing the best candidate for the position and district. Pete has helped our administrators see the value behind a standardized process that is founded on research and best practice, and provides a high level of predictability regarding the candidate’s success in the position.

“TargetSuccess provided research based training and support to our entire administrative team. The outcomes from the training in teacher selection not only include a tremendous improvement for our district’s selection process, but it also served as high quality professional development for all participants. Over three days of training, our team drew together with a common vision for the values we seek in new hires. We learned to identify the inherent characteristics and behaviors which give us the greatest possibility of selecting teachers with real potential to be an excellent educators for our students.
