KCVWDB DELIVERS APPLICANTS THAT ARE TRAINED TO MEET YOUR NEEDS BY EXPERTS FROM TARGET INDUSTRIES.
KCV WDB offers a number of free resources to businesses for staffing purposes. Whether you have just a few openings or hundreds, our staff will meet with you to determine how we can assist you. Missouri Career Center staff will assist with: job listings, applicant matching, resume review, skills assessments, and pre-screening of applicants. The Missouri Job Center can provide a large pool of recently trained and experienced workers. In addition, employers have access to conference and meeting rooms to interview and assess applicants at our eight different locations that are accessible by public transit.
Our employer partnerships offer the benefit of an on-the-job training program that allows employers to be reimbursed up to 50% of a new employee’s training wages in exchange for on-the-job training. The Kansas City and Vicinity Local Missouri Career Centers will assist in identifying and pre-screening new applicants while employers themselves retain full control over the hiring and placement process.
Internships allow employers to determine whether employees are a good fit for their company prior to being officially hired. Through our internship process, the Kansas City and Vicinity Local Missouri Career Center serves as the employer of record and pays the full cost of an internship stipend for six to eight weeks based upon fund availability. Internships are popular among job seekers as they provide valuable work experience and training.
The Registered Apprenticeship Program allows employers to build a qualified workforce while minimizing employee turnover by offering workers training in high-skilled, high-paying jobs that are accompanied by the guidance of mentorship.
