Amanda Boyd, M.A. (She/Her)
I started Visible Talent with one goal in mind: to create an agency where no one would have to hide vital pieces of their identities to gain fulfilling and honoring careers. Early in my career, I never felt free to present as my full self without jeopardizing being offer opportunities. No qualified candidate should have to feel as insecure as I did in those moments.
I am an entrepreneurial creative, lifelong learner and mother of two. My professional background began in Art Education as a professor at Kent State University while running successful small and medium size enterprises. My businesses range from services to hospitality and real property management.
No matter the industry I was involved in for the past 15 years my focus was rooted in training diverse populations and marginalized communities, specializing in the LGBTQ+ community. My background in higher education has enhanced my commitment and ability to promote anti-bias efforts in every candidate I screen and company culture I train.
I help my clients hire a diverse but always highly-qualified workforce by using more than just the traditional networks. I have curated a diverse database of candidates that brings talent into vision that may otherwise go unseen. I am committed to offering companies a rich and abundant hiring pool to serve even the most niche of company cultures.
Whether partnering in direct hire searches, hourly temporary labor and temp to hire hybrids, I always strive to make friends of my clients along the way! Go ahead, ask them!
