Apprenticeship: A New Talent-Acquisition Strategy

CareerWise helps its employer partners recruit and develop a highly-trained workforce for hard-to-fill positions with apprentices that remain with your company for three years. There are no forced placements—apprentices are hired by the employer based on their aptitudes and fit. Apprentice productivity over that time outpaces the training wages and investment in the program, resulting in a flexible, industry-driven talent strategy that meets your specific needs.
