Imagine you’ve just graduated. You’ve walked the stage, gotten your diploma, and taken all the pictures you could want. All of a sudden, you’re confronted with that oh so important question – “so what’s next?” Whether it’s from family, friends, former teachers, or even yourself, that question is coming. What’s scary is that a lot of graduates don’t know the answer. Be Your Own Hero knows the pressure of landing a first job in one’s desired field, especially in our seemingly intolerant job market where quality jobs demand experience.
“53% of all young college graduates in America are either unemployed or grossly underemployed, according to The Economic Collapse? We won’t stand for talent gone wasted and neither should you. We’re confident that, together, we can beat the statistics and get educated young people in career jobs. Through our informal ad hoc program, we’ve successfully transitioned hundreds of millennials into the workforce”.
But because more and more fresh grads are taking low-wage jobs, we feel passionate about building a formal campaign that will allow us to affect more people. Be Your Own Hero is officially launching “Adopt A Grad” to help our young population begin their career journeys in industries that will develop their skill sets and make use of their unique talents. Because our small-shop employment and human capital consulting firm, APA Solutions, has built long-standing partnerships with growth-oriented companies over the years and commits to filling permanent placements only, we are in a unique position to create mutually beneficial relationships between employers and millennials.
Our direct-hire specialties include: administrative, accounting / finance, construction, customer service, human resources, inside / outside sales, IT / technical, management, manufacturing / engineering, marketing /advertising, not-for-profit, and project management.
