CHICAGO, Illinois (July 29, 2014)—Brilliant™, a search, staffing and management resources firm specializing in the accounting, finance and IT professions, has significantly increased its internal staff in the first half of 2014. Due to high demand from its current client base, the middle–sized firm has added 21 new positions across its three locations, Chicago, Schaumburg and Fort Lauderdale.

The rapidly growing firm is comprised of four business units including Financial Search, Financial Staffing, Management Resources and Technology Staffing. Each unit employs business development and recruiting professionals who consult with hiring companies and job–seekers to connect the two and fill open positions. Brilliant™ also has accounting, administrative, internal recruiting and marketing teams that support the company’s staffing efforts.

New employees were evenly hired across the entire company.

“The pace we’re hiring right now is unprecedented, and we don’t anticipate it slowing down. We plan to add at least 10 more new hires before the year end. Since the company’s inception in 2009, this is the first time we’ve been fortunate enough to employ such a large number of qualified talent,” says Jim Wong, CPA (Inactive) CEO and Founder of Brilliant™. Wong continues, “We haven’t only increased the value of our services by bringing on these 21 new hires, but we’re offering them an outstanding work environment in return. Our company’s dynamic culture was recently recognized when we were named one of Chicago’s Best and Brightest Companies to Work For®. I couldn’t be more proud.”

Further, just as reported by the firm’s Q3 2014 Hiring Forecast, the second half of 2014 is slated to see a steady increase in hiring trends — and Brilliant™’s internal hiring rate is a perfect reflection of that.
