Without a doubt, process matters. However, when it comes to answering the question, “What makes us different?” it’s not our process, it’s our talent. We eat our own cooking and therefore believe that what distinguishes great firms from the rest is not necessarily their process, but their people. Just because we have the playbook of the Detroit Red Wings doesn’t mean we can win a Stanley Cup - we need the talent.
Therefore, iDream Talent differentiates itself through its people, hiring individuals defined by integrity, intensity, and results. But that’s not all, folks! We also select our clients very carefully and we refuse to just chase the money. Since we, too, want to fall asleep at night knowing our word means something, we only recruit for companies where we ourselves would work.
So what’s different? Our people and our clients. The process matters, but is secondary to who we are, what we believe, and getting the job done.
Talent translates— The “wiring” that made you successful in sports has the potential to significantly impact your ability to deliver results and contribute to your team and company in the business world.

“I recently had a project with Addison and his company iDream Talent where my client hired 6 people ranging from Sales Specialists to a VP position. We were impressed with the quality of candidates Addison provided, and his willingness to adapt to our changing criteria and priorities. It was not a case where they had a pool of talent they were trying to "sell" us. He listens and worked with us as a customer. I cannot express enough how impressed we were with the candidates they provided.”

“I have had the opportunity to partner with Addison on roles since I joined this division of Stryker in 2013. From the start of our working relationship, he has taken the time to understand the needs of the business, the nuances of the managers, and which work style works best with mine. He has placed countless talented team members in our sales organization here and never sacrifices quality and long term fit in order to close a role. He is invested in our success and works hard to build our team. Additionally, his positive attitude and upbeat disposition makes working with him fun and easy. I look forward to a continued winning relationship with Addison!”

“Addison provides an unprecedented recruiter experience. With other recruiters, there has always been an element of resistance when I've decided not to move forward with a candidate. With Addison, it is completely the opposite. He is 100% focused on you finding the right candidate and not pressuring you toward hiring any one he brings to the table. It is refreshing to have a real partner in finding the talent I need for my team.”

“I recently graduated from the University of Virginia, where I earned a degree as a student athlete. Unable to find a job in the current US market, I was planning on relocating all the way to Australia for an internship when an associate from iDream Talent contacted me with a lead on a great career. Not just a job. A dream career in Chicago! They have been extremely easy going and friendly to talk to from the beginning. They helped me with the entire application and interview process, and I was offered the job within weeks. I can’t thank iDream Talent enough for opening this amazing door for me! I would recommend this company to anyone I know. They truly make dreams come true and I am so excited about my future thanks to iDream Talent!”

“When many think of recruiting, the image of an individual may come to mind who simply aids you in a job hunt. Addison has done so much more than that; not only was he an amazing coach in my quest for a career, but he was a mentor. He helped me every step of the way from the resume and interview down to recommending sites to see while in Chicago. He is extremely passionate in his work which is exemplified through his professionalism, knowledge, and overall personality. As many have said regarding Addison's reference, I couldn't have done it without him and I am so grateful to have had him assist me in my journey to the windy city.”

“In my eyes, Addison is the epitome of how a recruiter should go about their business. From start to finish, he was with me every step of the way, helping out with interview preparations, etc. It was a pleasure working with him and his team, because they were constantly keeping me in the loop regarding how things were progressing. I highly recommend Addison and the entire iDream Talent organization to anyone that is looking for the "job of their dreams"', because they will find it for you and they will do everything possible to help you get there!”
