Our Core Services

About Pittsburgh’s programs and services are personally designed to meet the specific needs of your candidates and new hires. Our goal is to present Pittsburgh from your candidate’s perspective.



Today’s war for talent has challenged many Pittsburgh companies and institutions to find successful solutions when attracting the brightest talent to our region.  About Pittsburgh successfully partners with you to help your candidates and their families overcome lifestyle barriers that a potential relocation may present.  Through listening to your candidates’ needs, providing extensive research and offering custom-designed introductions to Pittsburgh, we can help your candidates and their families visualize their life in Pittsburgh, helping them to accept an offer.


Once a decision has been made to relocate, new hires and families have more detailed questions than they typically might have during the recruitment process. About Pittsburgh helps your new hires and their families strategize and prioritize their beginning steps for moving, and once they have relocated helps them assimilate smoothly into their new community. This allows your new hires to hit the ground running on day one at work, and their families to feel comfortable with their new surroundings.

Group Moves

A divisional transfer, office move, or headquarter shift can create a tremendous need to keep vital talent from leaving.  About Pittsburgh is exceptionally successful in helping companies strategically prepare to retain valued talent by helping to design a process for the move that will best meet their key talent’s lifestyle requirements.

Graduate, Summer Interns and Young Professionals

Attracting young talent, whether it be for full-time positions (filling the gap) or for summer internship programs, has become critical to the future of many companies and institutions. About Pittsburgh has created invaluable, innovative programs to attract younger candidates to our region and to help retain them once they have arrived.


Talent Management

Pittsburgh is once again on the cutting edge of technology, along with healthcare, academics, finance and manufacturing.  It is also a city that is aging faster than it can “fill the gap” with new talent.  With our many customized programs, About Pittsburgh has created ways to help your human resource team and front line recruiters attract and manage new talent.
