FAQs for Employers

Is Dreambound a staffing agency?

Dreambound is not a staffing agency. We help employers sponsor training for passionate aspiring allied health candidates. Our unique approach allows us to reach dedicated job-seekers before they hit the market. This means our partner employers have access to a pipeline of fully-vetted, trained, and certified candidates before anyone else does.

I noticed you’re not in my location. How long will it take you to get here?

We follow our employers’ needs to various major metros. If you request a new metro area for us to enter, depending upon a few factors, it takes about 30 days to enter and send our first set of candidates to begin training.

How do you find people? Where do you find them?

Dreambound sources candidates via partnerships we have built with hundreds of vocational schools across the country.

What information do I get about each candidate?

Each employer has its own unique needs and criteria for who they believe would be a good fit for their facilities. As such, Dreambound helps collect information from candidates to help employers best make their decisions. Candidates must submit an online application, choose a school they'd like to enroll in, submit their resume, and respond to a video interview.

What requirements do you have for people that you select?

As each employer has different requirements, we allow any candidate to apply as long as they self-affirm they are able to pass the legally-required background check. Candidates are also aware that COVID vaccinations are required unless they have a documented medical or religious exemption. It is up to the employer to ensure that the candidate is the best fit for their facility.

What about our special requirements? (drug test, BG check, vaccinations)

We try to do our best to meet our employers where they are at. If you have an additional requirement in addition to our existing vetting process, we will display them to candidates as they select which facilities to apply to.

When can I select candidates (what stage of the journey)?

We send profiles of candidates to partnered employers as soon as a candidate has completed their application (including submitting a resume and video interview) and indicated they are looking to be sponsored by a local employer.

Who chooses who gets sponsored and works at our facility? You or us?

You do. You have full control over whom you select.

How much does it cost?

The cost varies based on the plan you choose. Please reach out to our partnerships team for more details.

Can we be your exclusive employer in the area?

Unfortunately, we do not offer exclusivity to employers because we support and strive to continuously offer our candidates more choice in their employment journey. However, we are confident that we will meet your hiring needs for CNAs and other healthcare workers.

How do we get preferred over other employers?

In metros in which we have multiple employer partners, you will stand out to our candidates just by offering competitive rates, benefits, and a great work environment. Employers may also choose to adjust the contract term length that candidates commit to in exchange for their tuition being paid for.

Are there any upfront costs or fees? Mandatory minimums?

None. No fees. No minimums. You have an option of choosing between a monthly flat-rate subscription or pay-per-candidate pricing model.

What licenses do you support?

At the moment we support most allied health licenses (including Certified Nursing Assistants, Medication Aide, LVN). You can view the full list. Have a different license requirement? Send us an email at [email protected]

What other programs do you offer?

In select markets, we also offer a Up-skilling program. If you're interested in these programs, please email us at [email protected]
