When you lose an employee, you lose money
MicroTrain Recruitment Services
Many organizations grapple with employee turnover. Unfortunately, extensive employee attrition can negatively impact your bottom line. Since organizations function best when they have a full staff, MicroTrain is committed to helping you fill vacancies with the best candidates, and make their transitions from new hires to productive employees as efficient as possible.
MicroTrain’s Recruitment Services incorporate a comprehensive campaign to engage both active and passive job seekers. We employ our tested and perfected methods and processes, as well as new and innovative practices to address each organization’s unique needs. We aim to assemble a robust pool of resources, set and manage expectations, showcase your organization as an employer of choice and preserve candidate engagement throughout the entire recruiting process.
MicroTrain Recruitment Services utilizes a comprehensive recruiting strategy that surpasses most staffing agencies’ subpar recruiting process. Acquiring qualified candidates that possess high-demand, niche skills by relying solely on responses to job postings will not be enough. Our recruiters utilize direct sourcing campaigns to entice candidates out of their present organization by targeting a category of companies that employ comparable personnel and skills.
Once the outreach, communication and recruiting initiatives have taken place and a collection of qualified candidates has been identified, we apply our comprehensive filtering process to pinpoint the most competent and engaged candidates.
Our screening methodology imparts a multi-faceted approach to measure three integral variables: Skills, Values & Persona. We not only appraise candidates’ hard-skills (core competencies) but we’ll also gauge a candidate’s value system and persona to determine their soft skills and overall approach and mindset. We exhaust our process to ensure candidates encompass relevant core competencies and will seamlessly integrate with your environment, people and values. Additionally, our screening process involves the verification of past employment, through background investigation and references. These measures will ensure proper alignment between the candidates we find and each opening you have within your organization.
For many of our competitors, once they fulfill a position, the relationship with the candidates ends. For MicroTrain Recruitment Services, our relationship extends beyond placement. In addition to an exhaustive recruiting process, we maintain relations with the candidates we place to ensure long-term success and employer satisfaction.

Employer Partner Feedback
Dawn has been a pleasure to work with. She is diligent in her efforts to give MicroTrain’s students the best opportunities to connect and network with various companies and players in the job market. The curriculums and certification programs are in line with today’s current IT needs. It’s good to see that they evolve with what employers are most seeking out there. I would recommend to any employer that hires skilled IT workers that they look into MicroTrain’s career services department as a potential source of candidates. The business of hiring can be quite costly, and Dawn and her staff provide a free service to outside companies. This value-add for MicroTrain’s students aligns with their mission in both training and job assistance to set up a win/win scenario for all involved.
Microtrain presents the course material in an interesting and concise manner. Microtrain gives the student all the resources necessary to pass the certification exams. Both the Chicago and Lombard facilities were excellent, and the staff goes to any length to accommodate any student changes.
Recently Employed at Comcast
It means a lot to have a relationship with my Career Service Manger, and Elliott Esparza has been great to work with. We went over my resume, completed mock interviews, he kept me informed about positions that fit my skill set, gave me motivational advice...what else can I say, he has been great! I wouldn't have been able to get this job without his help! Working with Elliot definitely helped to open up more job opportunities and also gave me a fresh perspective on how I can improve my interviewing skills while I still was looking for work. If you want the best technical training, MicroTrain is definitely the school to attend. They have so much to offer their students: career services, resume workshops, hiring events, knowledgeable instructors, mock interviewing - their critical path tool is also an excellent resource. MicroTrain staff, instructors, and career services definitely go out of their way to ensure the success of their students.
A Cisco Success Story
I attended a resume writing seminar & conducted mock phone interviews with a Microtrain career counselor. These two activities gave me a leg up on distinguishing myself from all the other people looking for work. Since the career counselor's at Microtrain had a track record of getting people hired, their insight and positive past experiences helped me tremendously in getting hired with a Cisco Voice Systems Integrator in the Chicago area. I was hired as a Cisco Voice Tech Engineer with a starting salary of $65,000 / year with a Cisco voice systems reseller located in the Chicagoland area. Microtrain was very instramental in making this a reality. From expediting my WIA grant, to providing excellent hands-on training from knowledgable instructors I was able to achieve becoming certified with my CCNP. Microtrain's career services was the final catalyst in connecting me with this company by communicating with them on my behalf and with me in setting up the interview. One week later and I was hired. No joke. Thanks Microtrain!
