PARTNERS + VOLUNTEERS

When you need to fill a position, you need candidates. Yesterday.

You’ve got limited time to sift through the hundreds of resumes you’ve received through Craigslist and to find the few that are actually qualified. You want someone who can hit the ground running, who doesn’t require training and who can easily fit into your team.

You need a free service that can make your hiring process fast and tailored to your needs. We can help.

Contact Bette to get your recruitment started: 415-479-9922 or email us.

I would tell any woman 50 and older who wants to get back in the workforce to take every advantage of what this program has to offer. When I was ready — I was skilled, prepared and confident. It was an invaluable experience.
