Wouldn’t it be great if you could order workforce talent just like you order a new piece of equipment? You enter the technological specks: It needs to be 5G ready, it needs to work with Microsoft Office, and it needs to integrate with all current platforms. Then in a few days, weeks, or months, your product arrives ready for installation into your production schedule.

Now, you can submit a talent request in exactly the same way. All you need to do is complete a Talent Request at https://Dream2Career.org and we will start training individuals to meet your needs. In a few days, weeks, or months; depending on the complexity of your request, we will have your newly trained individuals ready for on-boarding. We will be working with our training partners to ensure that you can hire individuals who fit your exact specifications.

Don’t worry… We always work first with the student in mind. We are creating on-ramps for all industries for students to explore. Using Dream2Career‘s new D2C Directory students and job-seekers have easy access to organized and validated work-learn information from which to learn about and choose careers. The best part for the student is they will see career pathways before they waste their time and money on the wrong training programs. They will also be happier employees when they can easily find career opportunities that matches their interests and aspirations.

The best part for you, as the employer, is that you will have easy access to individuals who exactly match your hiring criteria-because you submitted the request. Retention rates will soar, saving you time and money. We are embarking on this brand new talent strategy, one that truly looks at the process through a completely different lens, but we are certain that in the end, your workforce environment will improve significantly.

You’ve already done all of the work, we just need to move your information from your website and other resources into the Talent Request form so that students can have access to industry information and your recommendations or specks so they know how to “build themselves”. The form is simple there are only a few boxes to click and you can share links to your current career resources. You know.. those great pages you developed that no one ever visits. Working with D2C, you will immediately see increased traffic to those pages. Remember this is a resource for entry-level talent what you say to them is completely up to you. Join us and let’s create the workforce pipeline you’ve always wanted. When you get your wish we will also be helping students succeed and communities flourish.
