Work Experience Program

Work Experience banner

Work experience is a cost-free and low-risk way for your business to test out a new worker for up to 9 weeks. It’s a change to teach a new worker the job you need done and boost production. And if the worker meets your company’s needs, you can hire them on permanently and grow your business. How does it work? Simply tell us your workforce needs and we’ll recruit and screen appropriate worker candidates for you. We’ll pay for the wages and the payroll taxes of the worker(s) for up to 9 weeks. You supervise the worker(s) on the worksite to get them up to speed and get the job done. The final hiring decision is yours.
