What We Do

We help companies streamline their entry-level hiring process and find “right fit” recent college graduates for open positions. We have built a massive, year-round college graduate recruiting program for our clients, encompassing more than 900 colleges as well as an aggressive online recruiting strategy, all targeted at the Millennial demographic. We screen and interview hundreds of recent college graduates every week using a process based on behavioral science research at the University of Minnesota to discover candidates’ transferable skills. With our superior matching process, our placements achieve retention rates that are double that of the average for comparable employees nationally. Avenica: better, faster, cheaper entry-level recruiting.

Entry-level Hiring Options

Avenica’s hiring model typically operates in the following ways:

Evaluation-to-Hire™

Our Evaluation-to-Hire model is our most popular hiring option. Using this approach, once you select a new grad to fill a position through Avenica, the candidate is hired by Avenica and assigned to you for a ~4 month trial period. This evaluation period allows you to see the candidate perform on the job before making your final hiring decision. After the trial period, you may hire the candidate at no additional obligation. The Evaluation-to-Hire model significantly reduces the risk of making a poor hiring decision. When our program is used as designed, 85 percent or more of Avenica candidates are hired after this period, highlighting the quality of our matching process.

Short-Term

Short-term or project-based positions can last anywhere from a few weeks to many months and are not intended to result in a long-term offer. Whether covering a leave of absence or helping with a major project, our candidates are excited to gain relevant work experience and bring a positive attitude to work every day.

Direct Hire

While the vast majority of the positions we fill are done so using either the Evaluation-To-Hire or Project Staffing approach, some clients prefer using a direct hire model. We can provide this service, as well, and use a competitive fee-based contingency model if you prefer.

CollegeDirect®

CollegeDirect® focuses on recruiting graduating seniors during their senior year for positions that start immediately after graduation. This service is suited for companies that will be making multiple hires for structured group training classes. We utilize this program for many clients, so please note this preference, if applicable, when you complete the Partner With Us process (below).
