Feel understood and belong.
Searchlight allows your past performance to speak and set you up for success.
You’re more than your resume
Companies use Searchlight to learn about your strengths, working styles, and how to set you up for success from the people who know your work the best.
References help you get noticed
Searchlight references aren’t just a checkbox exercise. We help prior managers and colleagues showcase the most valuable parts of you, so that hiring managers and recruiters get a full picture of you beyond the resume and interviews.
Thrive in your next role
Everyone can be exceptional in their ideal environment. References know what it’s like to work with you, and Searchlight shares this knowledge with your future manager so that they can set you up for success from day one.
