A confidential platform connecting people looking to advance their careers with vetted recruiters

A goodwill, employer-branding gesture in times of heightened workforce anxiety.

An expedited search, screening, interviewing and presentation process saving recruiters valuable time.

vCandidates.com marries technology with the human touch.

Why are the two so important? No matter how much technology is available, without the human touch of a hiring professional to find and present employees or people in transition, effectively, the system will fail. Our platform provides recruiters the most vetted information when searching for talent.

No other platform is targeting candidates and their career search and aspirations directly.

Recruiters will have a leg up in winning the race to find the best viable candidates to interact with and present to their clients decreasing the possibility of in-house placements or submissions from competing staffing firms.

How are we able to do this? Because our co-founders were recruiters. We understand the problems that plague recruiters and hinders job seekers from being found when searching for their career position.
