Recruit Early Talent and Ignite Careers
Engaging college students to find the right person to help shape your organization's future is good, hard work.
College recruiting programs require dedicated expert resources that smaller organizations often lack.
Wonderbench ignites early careers and makes it easy for any organization to recruit top grads and interns. We empower our clients to nimbly address current issues while building a strong leadership bench for a better future.
How It Works
We help you start with a clear, compelling job description. Then, we activate our network via a disciplined process and deliver 3-5 top candidates within 2 weeks.
We showcase your motivations and abilities associated with high performance. Our personal approach, assessment and recorded video interview help you land more opportunities.
What People Say
The Issue: Hearing no responses to job applications, not knowing what to improve on, and job applications are long and repetitive. Wonderbench provided a lot of support, encouragement, and always responded in a timely manner. Even though I was not chosen for the position I initially applied for, Wonderbench went out of their way to try to find a position that was right for me. Not many other recruiters will put in this same effort to help their applicants succeed.
The ANA (Association of National Advertisers) is the largest marketing organization in the country, with the ANA Business Marketing, focused on B2B. The NorCal chapter represents some of the world's largest San Francisco Bay Area Tech and Biotech companies. Before working with Wonderbench, we depended mainly on WOM referrals. Wonderbench enabled us to bring on bright, eager, intelligent, entry-level marketers who were not only eager to tackle and manage projects with skill and efficiency but who surprised us with their knowledge of emerging platforms, bringing forth fresh ideas that truly, positively impacted projects. Because of Wonderbench, our organization was able to quickly tackle a list of projects that had been on a long-term wish list. This is freeing us up to create an exciting road map for the coming year that will include more of Wonderbench's services. Both of our interns have since graduated college with honors and are now employed full-time with well-recognized brands. We are thrilled that one has decided to stay with us as a board member! We would recommend Wonderbench's services to any organization looking to stay relevant in today's and tomorrow's world.
Univ. of Oregon BA (Class 2021)
Wonderbench has done so much for my self-confidence, I felt like they saw something within me and provided me with many opportunities to showcase myself. Wonderbench is helping me achieve my goals by giving me the confidence to keep trying. They are excellent in caring for their client base. I feel they are really in it for my best interest.
Talent Brand Social Media / HR Intern
Because of the current COVID-19 pandemic, many companies I had applied to work with canceled their summer internship programs. Wonderbench made me aware of companies still hiring during COVID-19. Wonderbench helped me realize my strengths in the workplace and as an employee. I have now been able to play to my strengths in interviews.
BA Bus Admin (class 2022)
I would like to thank you for all that you have done for me in this
recruitment process. I'm genuinely grateful to have had you as a recruiter, you were kind and more than helpful throughout the process.
Grad Student/NLP Intern
I probably applied to over a hundred internships within a two-month span. It felt absolutely hopeless to send out application after application and get nothing but automated emails back. One of my professors described job hunting online as "screaming into the void", which feels horribly accurate to me.
Working with Wonderbench was one of the only authentic human interactions I had while job hunting. Joe contacted me personally and was the bridge between me and the company. After essentially having zero communication with most of the other jobs I applied for, having someone who contacted me personally, was honest and clear about the status of the position, and who continued to offer support even after that particular application didn't work out, was an utterly positive and memorable experience.
While I actually ended up finding a position through a different route, Joe still kept in contact and continued to offer his assistance. He's connected with me on LinkedIn, invited me to webinars, and gotten me in contact with other people in my field. I'm sure that once I'm on the job market again, Wonderbench will be my first point of contact.
Making me feel seen, heard, and valuable! Excellent communication!
Earned Media Marketing Intern
Prior to working with Wonderbench, I struggled with applying to a job and simply never hearing back, even if I followed up. It was extremely discouraging as I would put a lot of effort into each application only to be completely ghosted. Wonderbench acknowledged my application and followed up via email with each step I completed throughout the process. This felt very personalized and thorough so that when I was hired, I felt like I had a thorough understanding of the position and company itself.
Placed Marketing Intern
As an Economics student passionate about marketing, Wonderbench has helped me land an exciting marketing internship at Auditoria and reach a great milestone in developing my professional experience and career.
Wonderbench made the remote hiring process seamless by scouting and interviewing top candidates that fit our job description. They provided us with detailed customized reports of each candidate and recorded interviews that allowed us to get to know each candidate on a personal level. With their help, we were able to hire three amazing staff that fit well into our organization and its culture. We highly recommend using Wonderbench for your hiring needs, especially during these trying times where the workplace is becoming predominately remote.
After graduation, I felt I had everything together in order to land an entry-level job; my degree, current resume, and updated LinkedIn profile. It was devastating to apply to so many companies and not hear responses or only be passed on to automated-responses. It wasn't until I worked with Wonderbench that I realized how easily everything can be showcased into one profile for employers to review. In addition, I learned so much more about possible sales positions. The job-fit assessment offered amazing responses for preparing for interviews. Before Wonderbench, I felt I had a good grasp on what interviewers want to hear, but Wonderbench perfected my answers. Thanks for everything, Wonderbench!
founder and ceo
Sayap Africa is a (501)(C)3 non-profit organization whose vision is to assist communities in Africa. College students are very sophisticated young men and women who are willing to hit the ground running but finding the fit for that first job is not easy. Our limited resources are directed to disaster relief operations, clean water to communities, and equipment to hospitals. Wonderbench came in and worked with us. Wonderbench tailored the selection to our needs and international mission. It was a win-win. In less than two weeks we had a match. Wonderbench's presentation was very easy to navigate. I will do it again. Thank you Wonderbench.
It was challenging to highlight and clearly describe my relevant qualifications and work experience in my previous applications and interviews. This was because most interview questions were general and did not give me sufficient opportunity to express my expertise and passion wholeheartedly. Wonderbench's behavioral test and one-way interview clearly showed my personality traits, qualities, passion, and compatibility with the job. Additionally, the in-person interview also helped to address any questions and concerns. Wonderbench helped match me with a job opportunity that is a perfect fit for me by utilizing a fair and fun application process.
Wonderbench removed the friction at each point of the internship journey. Whether it was the creation of a clear description of the internship opportunity, the candidate job fit report, or the pre-filmed video interviews, Workbench's platform provided a curated experience for each candidate that made the process seamless.
It's difficult to find one spot to reach college students without going to each University separately. Wonderbench presented well-qualified applicants with a summary and recorded interview that was extremely helpful and provided all of the information I needed to decide if I wanted to proceed and interview the candidate myself. Joe was wonderful to work with. He presented quality candidates and made my process 100% easier than if I had tried to do this on my own.
Wonderbench took my students from their initial career thoughts/ideas and walked with them, providing more confident career pathways. Through enlightening assessments, small group discussions, intentional assignments, engaging speakers, and personalized, informative analysis, I watched Wonderbench help prepare these students for their upcoming college majors and campus choices…..truly having such a significant impact on these life-changing decisions. As an educator, I was impressed at the level of detail students walked away with learning about their strengths and priorities. Wonderbench paired my students’ career interests with remarkable speakers who are currently working within their desired fields, allowing them to ask questions, listen to authentic feedback about these careers, and catch a glimpse into their potential futures. Thank you, Wonderbench, for such a positive experience and for leaving your door open to these students for future networking and mentoring opportunities.
I had a hard time getting responses and interviews from companies.
Wonderbench kept my application constantly engaged with the recruiting company. Additionally, Wonderbench made sure that my application was the best it could be prior to showing it to the employer.
If it were not for Wonderbench, I would not have been able to find such a great career opportunity at Auditoria.ai this summer.
I thought Joe's consistent contact with me made the process seamless and enjoyable. He seemed to genuinely care about my success.
UX/UI Design Placed Intern
Wonderbench has connected me with companies and has helped me prepare for landing an internship in my field of study through webinars and other career growth events to help further my skills and knowledge.
Prior to working with Wonderbench, I was not hearing back from recruiters and companies. Joe was very accessible and made the application process easy. I have a job now! I loved how easy the interview process was and the instructions were very clear.
Master Student in Computer Science
With the help of Wonderbench, I got to know several exciting job openings that were not found in LinkedIn or Indeed. And recently Wonderbench has been organizing webinars regularly to share tips on job-seeking during this challenging COVID-19 time.
Before Wonderbench, I was competing against hundreds of candidates for the same role. This competition was exacerbated by the ongoing COVID-19 crisis. Wonderbench helped me stand out amongst the crowd and ultimately, helped me secure a position at a wonderful company. Wonderbench addressed these issues by giving me personalized advice and continuously updating me with relevant opportunities. As a result, I was able to apply to positions whose descriptions perfectly aligned with my own skills. My ultimate goal was to secure an internship. Wonderbench helped me achieve that goal by sending me relevant opportunities and helping me secure interviews. The personalized advice you gave me was life-changing. Thank you!
Co-Founder & Managing Partner
As the first business consulting company in Rwanda, our value lies in connecting excellent people to meaningful projects. After 12+ years, our greatest challenge has been finding and keeping excellent people. Every recruiting effort feels like searching for a "needle in a haystack," so when I went looking for a financial analyst with data visualization expertise, I knew it would be extremely difficult. Thankfully, Wonderbench understood the challenge, directed their search tools to find hundreds of candidates, used their comprehensive analysis and interviews to identify the best two candidates.... all while my team and I were working on other projects! We have hired one as a full-time employee and the other as a project-based contractor, and we are convinced none of our conventional recruiting efforts could have succeeded as Wonderbench has. If finding and keeping excellent people has been our weakest link, Wonderbench may have finally begun to address it.
High School Junior
I LOVED the guest speakers. I think it was a great way to show students the work aspects and the daily life of a person who works in that specific field. It gave me great insights and now I think I know what I should really be focusing on! I want everyone to feel great about their future careers as we felt about ours. I loved the experience! Thank you once again!
Sales Operations Analyst
With Wonderbench, I was able to showcase my skills through an assessment that let employers see past my academic major and limited work experience. It was through the connections I made at Wonderbench that landed me in the field I am in today!
Customer Success Representative
Prior to Wonderbench, it was difficult to get in and show companies how my background would be impactful in their field. Wonderbench saw my talent and helped me with a company that also saw my talents. Wonderbench significantly assisted in helping me land an incredible role at a wonderful company. Thank you so much for the constant communication and for seeing my fit with my current company!
Director of Operations
It has always been hard to find and vet early career talent - hungry to start their careers who also have a solid skillset. Wonderbench made it easy: sourcing, vetting, and putting strong candidates in front of us. With a rapidly expanding customer base, we needed strong customer success team members and we needed them fast! Wonderbench made it happen.
Associate Marriage and Family Therapist
Before working with Wonderbench, I was having issues constantly submitting my resume and not hearing back from companies about where I was in the process. Not being informed included not knowing who I was interviewing and how many interviews were included. Wonderbench kept me updated on where I was in the process and who I would be interviewing with next until I got hired.
Wonderbench provides an easy way to connect with startups using an assessment that identifies your unique skill set and abilities. Thanks to Wonderbench, I was able to find an internship and tackle real-world challenges in the domain of NLP.
Vice President of Marketing
What were our prior college recruiting issues? A lot of manual effort had to visit the schools and collect the resumes. Wonderbench put all the materials in one place: (1) the recorded video interview, (2) the job fit score and analysis, and (3) the candidate's resume. It was very seamless to use Wonderbench to find great candidates. The videos and the job fit data were clutch.
Wonderbench sourced great intern candidates for our program and we plan on using them in the future.
I had trouble getting attention from companies to consider me as a candidate for their open positions. Wonderbench helped me stand out by creating a professional profile for me, that job recruiters would see. Wonderbench is helping me achieve my goals by allowing me to be open to new opportunities. The continuous support is amazing!
In general, companies rarely responded, or never viewed my application. The application process was frustrating. Joe reached out to me immediately and kept me in touch with the firm in all steps along the way. He was quick to respond and he emailed me as soon as he heard from ANA. I was not a huge fan of the exam sent out, but I understand why it is used. Wonderbench helped me get my first internship in marketing which I am very thankful for. Communication was excellent - always felt valued.
