Let us help you grow

your talent.

Hire exactly the right person for the role—the first time.

We understand that finding the right person for any given position is about more than just filling a role with someone who has the appropriate experience on paper. It’s about building relationships.


Unlike other agencies, we focus on making real connections with our clients and candidates. We work relentlessly to ensure that both candidates and clients have a clear understanding of the position and requirements before interviewing begins.


We fill it all. From executive level positions to administrative roles for Fortune 500 to start-ups. We recruit across disciplines, including Human Sources, Accounting and Finance, Sales, Marketing, Legal, and Technology.

We’re Bethany Schwab and Alicia Kirson, and we’re the partners of Top Talent. We understand how to serve our clients in the best way possible. We know how frustrating it is to get resumes for candidates who are not qualified, not in the market, or have never even been contacted by an agency in the first place. That’s why we founded Top Talent.

Bethany Schwab

Bethany Schwab’s natural intuition and empathy are key to  her success as a recruiter. After graduating from UC Santa Barbara, Bethany taught English in Spain while earning her master’s degree. During her nearly 10 years overseas, she found her passion helping people find their perfect jobs, and helping companies find their perfect employees. She worked for a well-known retained search firm, and ultimately found her way back to California, where she worked as an in-house recruiter for two large corporations. During her time in-house, she learned what a company needs from an outside recruiter, and together, Bethany and Alicia have created a recruiting agency focused on fulfilling both the client and candidate’s needs.

Alicia Kirson

Alicia Kirson has been using her innate curiosity and desire to help people to match candidates with jobs for more than 12 years. After graduating from business school at the University of New Mexico, she relocated to Los Angeles in search of better career opportunities. She began her career in marketing, where she discovered she really liked working with people. She made the leap from marketing to recruiting in 2006, working as a corporate recruiter and earning her PHR® through the Human Resources Certification Institute (HRCI).  In 2014, she joined forces with Bethany to create Top Talent, fulfilling a lifelong desire to own her own business.
