Recruiting Internships - Spring 2018

Location: Troy, NY
Date Posted: 10-26-2017
Pinnacle Recruiting ( is a staffing firm based in Troy, NY and has been recruiting for technology organizations in the Capital Region, NYC Metro, and beyond since 2009. We are a business casual, entrepreneurial environment where you will be just as likely to find us playing darts or air hockey as you will seeing us on the phone with clients or candidates. We work very hard to meet our clients' needs, but we believe in having fun while doing it.

A valuable takeaway of being an intern at a staffing firm is you observe the hiring processes of many companies of varying sizes and industries, and will see more real resumes (not templates) than you can imagine. By the time you've completed the semester, you walk away with priceless insight into the job seeking process from the employer's side, which will serve you well no matter what field you go into. Looking to get into sales? Marketing? We have projects in those areas too. We also encourage our interns to join us at networking events to give you a head start on building contacts for your future.

We are looking for interns for the Spring 2018 semester. If you are a student at a local college and are in need of an internship for this semester, get in touch with us. Hours are flexible, as we are results-oriented, not clock-punchers. If you are organized, ambitious, outgoing, and learn quickly, we would like to hear from you.

You will be assisting all aspects of recruiting, such as research, resume sourcing, candidate screening, reference checking, new hire paperwork, and much more. There are no lack of special projects related to all aspects of running a business. Our internship is a little different than most, because we don't have a set in stone list of duties, we base it on your skills and interests. Every intern we have had over the 7+ years we have been in business has brought different strengths, and had different goals, and all of them contributed in their own way. For example... love talking on the phone? Great, sometimes we can have you doing reference checks, screen candidates, etc. Hate talking on the phone and never ever want to pick one up? That's no problem, we will put you on research or analysis projects. We also give our interns the opportunity to join us at business events to develop their networking skills (and yes, we pay for you to go!).
