Thank you for your patience while we’ve worked to restore phones to all Talener offices and full functionality to our New York office.
All Talener Group offices should be back on line. The New York City office is running with reduced staff. If you had an appointment scheduled in our office this week and you are able to keep it, please reach out to the relationship manager or main line to confirm.
Feel free to contact Ashley Herron, our General Manager with any questions. You can reach her at (646)588-4668 or via email HERE.
If you are in the Northeast, please be safe as we try to navigate these next few days, and if you need to reschedule your appointments with us, please call.
Thank you and have a wonderful day!

Due to the hurricane hitting our corporate offices in New York and our phone company being on the east coast, we are currently without phones.
Should you need to reach anyone in any of our offices, please visit our teams pages (https://talener.com/team/our-team/) where you can find email addresses.
We are terribly sorry for the inconvenience and we hope that you find a way to contact us.
We will try to keep this updated with more information when we have it.

Brandon started with our New York Recruiting team in January of this year and has been a great addition to the energy here in our New York office. In addition to growing his skills as a recruiter, Brandon is also one of the all star team of Talener people who quit smoking this year. Brandon works most closely with our NY Open Source team and says that the thing he loves most about his job is: “I work with a great group of people. I like the teams I interact with everyday. Except on Mondays. I’d slap my own grandmother on a Monday…”
After struggling to find a job that didn’t involve bringing food and cocktails to the tables of New York’s rudest, Brandon felt very unsure about the future of his career. “When Mike Dsupin (Talener CEO) explained the logistics of what I would be doing, I thought working with Talener would be a great platform to help others find security and fulfillment in their job search, in a way that I hadn’t always been able to.”
Brandon brings an interesting blend of fresh air and cheekiness to our office as evidenced by his answer to the question “What is your favorite past time?”:
“I enjoy watching Buffy while eating carbs followed by having cocktails and puffing on my electronic cigarette. I try to get as much of this done on my lunch break as possible.”
We’re glad you are here, Brandon – although we may try and avoid you on Mondays…

Where is technology headed?
Is the push away from desktop computers to mobile and tablet products changing our world?
The struggle in the 60’s and 70’s used to be trying to find a computer that will fit in a house. Now we use computers that fit in our pockets,
The latest: iOS 6 Major New Features: http://www.iphonehacks.com/ios-6
The improvements continue..
–“It’s been barely four years since Apple’s iPhone changed the expectation of what a smartphone should be and inspired a trend that will deeply affect many companies’ technology and business operations.”-Galen Gruman
–Predictions for the key mobile developments over the next decade, where mobile technology is heading and its implications on IT and business strategy according to Galen Gruman:
2013: Mobile wallet technology, initially using screen-presented bar codes as now used for airline boarding, will become standard in smartphones and transaction terminals.
2014: Voice recognition and transcription technology will run capably on current mobile hardware, providing hands-free control over mobile devices in a broad range of applications. Use of signal-canceling multiple microphones, as well as broad use of headsets, will address the issues of multiple speakers in a room confusing the voice recognition and distracting other people.
2015: Mobile devices will dock to monitors, storage, networks, input devices, and so forth automatically. You’ll have just one computer — the one in your pocket — but it will be able to adapt into more than a smartphone when the right peripherals are around
2020: Miniaturization and image-projection technologies, coupled with previous 3D gesture technologies Google Goggles-wearable computers..
How will this benefit us?
Ultimately, this will open up jobs in NYC and around the world. This will call for better talent leading companies to need our service.
