Program gives Daniels Scholars a direct pipeline to entry-level careers through Avenica
MINNEAPOLIS (April 10, 2018) – Minneapolis-based entry-level recruiting firm Avenica announced today that it is partnering with Daniels Fund, a Denver-based private charitable foundation, with the goal of placing Daniels Scholars and alumni into entry-level career-track jobs with Avenica’s national network of clients.
The Daniels Scholarship Program provides four-year college scholarships for graduating high school seniors who demonstrate exceptional character, leadership and a commitment to serving their communities. The Daniels Scholarship Program encompasses much more than just financial support. Daniels Scholars become part of a community and gain access to personalized support and professional development, with the goal of helping each scholar succeed in college and ultimately become independent, successful in a rewarding career and actively engaged in their community.
“The Daniels Scholarship Program emphasizes the same characteristics we look for in our candidates, so this partnership is a great fit,” says Avenica CEO Brian Weed. “We look forward to helping the Daniels Scholars in their career exploration and planning, and I’m confident our clients will respond very positively to this group of capable graduates.”
Effective April 2018, Daniels Scholars have direct access to participate in Avenica’s process of assisting entry-level college graduates to find their “right fit” position and employer. This service will be available to current scholars preparing to graduate from college and Daniels Scholar alumni who have graduated within the last three years.
“Daniels Scholars possess so many of the qualities employers are looking for, and the Daniels Scholarship Program is designed to help them succeed in college and beyond,” said Linda Childears, president & CEO of the Daniels Fund. “We are looking forward to partnering with Avenica to give Daniels Scholars a highly effective resource to help them launch their careers.”
Avenica is an innovative education-to-work platform focused on bridging the skills gap to connect more people to better career opportunities. Through high-impact training and a comprehensive career discovery process, Avenica has helped thousands of people kickstart meaningful careers.
