  • An assessment of the job seekers interests and experience made previous to the interview to ensure the candidates fits with the needs of your business
  • Interview process, allowing employers to meet with the candidate and assess the potential fit
  • On the job support provided to both the employer and participant
  • Supporting participants to gain valuable skills, experience and relationships

What do others from DVBIA think of our services?

“Working with the YMCA to find the right candidate for our growing company was a dream come true. It has been the easiest recruitment experience we’ve had to date, and the level of support around on-boarding, training and additional education was beyond anything I could have imagined. I can’t stop referring my friends to the YMCA when I hear them say they’re looking to grow their team!”-Jennifer Kobelt, UpMedia
