Other facts:

  • Our mission is for every consultant to eventually transition into a permanent employee of the partnering company. Once transition occurs, the consultancy period ends and the individual is now fully integrated. This process averages between 9-12 months; and depends, primarily, on the consultant meeting job expectations.
  • All of our positions are full-time, entry level opportunities (some experience, and/or training, required). Individuals will receive an hourly wage in addition to our benefits package which includes tuition assistance.
  • Think of this opportunity as a test-drive situation. You are learning as you go along. Your managers are there to provide support and contribute to your professional development. Throughout the consultancy period you will make an hourly wage, but if you work hard and actively work on achieving and surpassing expectations, you will transition into a full time employee with the sponsor client at a more competitive salary.
