How It Works

With 20 years of experience in matching talented candidates with great companies hiring college grads at entry-level, Avenica has developed a proven process focused on long-term retention. In fact, when our process is used as designed, 85 percent or more of our candidates are hired after the trial period. And, follow-up client studies show that about 90 percent of those are retained two or more years after placement.

Our Process


Throughout the year, we are recruiting recent grads that might be “right fit” hires for you. We receive over 10,000 resumes each month, and apply our proprietary recruiting process (see below) to find your candidates.

Job Analysis

Avenica performs a thorough job analysis with your hiring manager, getting to know your company and the position’s specific needs. We learn about job responsibilities and identify behavioral-based transferable skills required for success in the position. In addition, we learn more about your company’s culture and work environment, which are increasingly important factors for entry-level job seekers.


Upon receiving a position to fill, we assess our pool of available candidates and select a small number to contact. We then ask each to research your industry, your company and the specific position, and respond with the reasons why they are interested in pursuing the entry-level job. This ensures presented candidates are invested in your position.


We present the best candidates for your position (typically 2-3 per role) and schedule interviews. You conduct your own in-person interview with these candidates before making your final decision. Because candidates have done their research and shown strong interest in your company and position, your interview should be fast-paced and meaningful.

Hiring & Onboarding

You select your preferred candidate and Avenica starts the hiring process. With Evaluation-To-Hire and Project Staffing positions, we hire the candidate and assign them to you where they work under your direction. For direct hire and CollegeDirect positions, we will work with you to help make your hiring process go as smoothly as possible.

Research-Based Corporate College Recruiting Process

Our corporate college recruiting program was designed based on behavioral science research from the University of Minnesota. Our science-based approach of going beyond the resume and identifying transferable skills, as well as career interests, ensures that we present you with the top choices who are the best match for your specific job opening. Our goal is to help you fill your entry-level positions with the right employees who will impact your business and grow with your organization for years to come.
