Frequently asked questions

Is Dreambound a staffing agency?

Dreambound is not a staffing agency. We sponsor training for passionate aspiring Certified Nursing Assistants and Licensed Caregivers candidates and place them at jobs with our partner employers. 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.

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

Dreambound has built a world class team specializing in marketing and partnerships. We drive search engine, social media, and content marketing along with other online and in-person strategies to attract prospective students and vocational training partners to our platform.

How do you vet your candidates?

Dreambound Agreement candidates go through a rigorous vetting process. Since we sponsor the candidate’s tuition, we work hard to ensure that they are successful. Each sponsored candidate has gone through an online application, resume, and document review (SSN, HS diploma, vaccinations), background check, video interview, and completed their vocational training program.

How much does it cost?

We charge 10-15% of the candidate’s first year salary - squarely in line with the going industry rate for adjacent recruiting services (often without the protections). The exact rate depends upon the size of the partnership, geography (metro) and starting salary in the region. 

Are there any up front costs or fees? Mandatory minimums?

None. No fees. No minimums. You only pay when a fully-vetted, certified (if applicable) employee shows up on day 1.
