Let's get to work

Get Started
Cara Connects helps people who are ready and able to work get the help and support needed to find employment. We do that by connecting our candidates with our employer partners, leading Chicago businesses that have trusted us to fill their temp positions with the best local talent. Like you. Never thought about temporary work before? Maybe these benefits might change your mind:
  • Flexibility for your schedule
  • Exposure to new industries
  • Valuable resume-building experience
  • Pathways to permanent positions
And the best news of all? If you crush it on your assignment, you will be placed in our larger candidate pool for more permanent placement. Think of this as a runway to get back on track. If you need a little help navigating the traffic on your road back to a job, it’s time to connect with us!

It's tough out there
The job market can be bananas, especially if you’ve been out of the workforce for a period of time. The rules have changed, cultures are different, and expectations have evolved. Think of Cara Connects as your support to help you refresh your skills and how you market them to more readily re-enter the workforce. We want to honor our namesake and be that friend you lean on in order to get back in the game.
The more, the merrier
Work for an organization that is serving the un- or under-employed but could use more resources to help folks get back to work? We can bring our onboarding program to your site to make your services accessible to the job seekers who need it most as an extension of the great work you’re already doing in the community. We have done this with success at libraries, schools, and even food pantries – places where people may already go to help serve their family. Could that be a win-win for your organization? If yes, Contact Us>

Let’s get to work It’s not just a tagline, it’s a call to action
It takes a whole posse of engaged people and institutions to help re-connect individuals to the workforce. Be it community partners to help source candidates, coaches to help refresh their skills, and firms on the other hand to tap that talent for placement – we have much work to do, and we cannot wait to get started. Come join us on the journey to help our communities get back to work.
