Unlike traditional staffing companies, Avenica doesn’t actually do any recruiting. In fact, Avenica doesn’t employ any recruiters. Through high-impact marketing and strong relationships with educators nationwide, Avenica intakes more than 120,000 candidates each year, and instead of conducting a simple resume screen to assess job fit, Avenica engages in an in-depth, high-touch process that includes career discovery, coaching, mentoring, last-mile training, and interview preparation. After spending anywhere between three hours and three months with a candidate, Avenica carefully matches that candidate based on skill and capability, but, more importantly, based on value alignment and culture fit.
