Jill Lutz (she/her) | CEO & Founder of Let's Build Talent

With over 20 years of experience matching great talent with awesome employers, Jill decided to strike out on her own in 2019 and formed Let's Build Talent, a recruiting firm dedicated to working with small businesses, online entrepreneurs, and start-up companies.

Jill spent five years in a traditional staffing company and then another 11 years in the community college - where her love for connecting talented individuals with small businesses developed. 

Growing up in Western Pennsylvania instilled a strong sense of community, dedication to life-long learning, and a never-give-up work ethic. Jill graduated from the University of Pittsburgh (dual degree in Business Administration and Psychology), Central Piedmont Community College (Paralegal Technology diploma), and SUNY-Stony Brook (Master’s in Human Resource Management). 

Now that Jill is finished earning degrees, she is ready to help your small business with all things recruiting and talent acquisition! ;-) She has hired both W-2 employees and Virtual Assistants over the course of her career and can discuss the benefits to each so that you make an informed decision.
