What does "talent and location related data" mean in reference to a research job?

The Associate Consultant will work closely with the Sr. Consultants and the Consultants in collecting, validating, analyzing and reporting the talent and location related data. He/She will also assist in writing reports and thought leadership articles. Primary Responsibilities: * Collect, synthesize, validate and document the data on location, talent attributes * Conduct intelligent online and offline searches * Conduct primary interviews through in-person and telephonic conversations * Analyze the collected data and document in the pre-defined templates * Distill complex information to develop reports, white papers, research articles * Day-to-day responsibilities includes meeting/discussions with colleagues to identify emerging needs and quickly adapt to the changing priorities. " And this is a list of their services on their website (sorry I'm pasting this): "Human Resource Outsourcing R&D Globalization Council Portfolio Prioritization Information Technology Outsourcing Knowledge Workshop Engagement Model Analysis Finance & Accounting Globalization Compliance and Best Practices Location Analysis Research & Development Governance Framework Captive Setup Marketing & Sales Benchmarking Vendor Selection Contract Structuring Overview Solutions Case Studies Proprietary Tools and Models Recent Innovation Opportunity Assessment Peer Group Benchmarking Customer Insights Distribution Strategy" Can someone please clarify what the talent and location data means and what you think I'd be doing day-to-day? Is this a sales/recruiting job in disguise? I'd appreciate the help. I'm a recent college graduate who hasn't applied for full time jobs like these before.
