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.

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!

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.
Great class, loved the interaction and team-building exercises. Plenty of materials and learning tools supplied. Although it was a full week's class, never boring. Donna [Russell] was awesome and gave many supporting examples for better understanding.
Student Employment Success - Project/Process Manager
My Career Services Manager was very friendly and helpful and had excellent follow-up. She seemed to really care how things were going and kept me moving in the right direction. The resources available in job search were great and the visibility that there were jobs out there looking for my skillset was promising. Additionally, the training, as well as having an updated resume stating the Microtrain course work I had taken made me feel more confident and marketable as I looked for employment. It showed that I was dedicated and took project management and process management seriously.
