Hire a Graduate
At Pioneer, we believe in giving people a chance for change. We hire on qualified graduates from our job readiness training course and occupational training programs to work in our manufacturing, commercial food services, construction and corporate office divisions. Over 65% of our current manufacturing workforce have overcome the challenges of criminal histories and/or chemical dependency issues.
Since we don’t have enough jobs to employ all of our graduates, our employer outreach specialists call on employers like yourself to consider hiring some of our skilled graduates. Pioneer’s vocational case managers work with our job-ready graduates and match their skill sets to the specific needs of employers.
Employment helps people transition back into society and lead crime-free lives. It also contributes to an individual’s stability which creates safer communities.
