Work with exciting companies
How it works
Apply and get matched with a VFA startup partner in your area of interest.
De-risk your potential transition by spending an initial 3 months in this role, part-time. During this time, you get the opportunity to work closely with the team, experience the company culture, and evaluate whether it makes sense as a potential long-term option.
Get onboarded as part of the team and collaborate on mission-critical deliverables while being paid for your time and effort.
VFA startup partners have the opportunity to make full-time offers to candidates directly after the matching process or after VFA's trial-to-hire model.

There aren’t a lot of opportunities like this out there and for me, it has really been a stimulating experience and one that has helped me validate certain questions I had about figuring out my career and the industry I was interested in.
In my previous experience with most recruiters, you get the feeling that all they want to do is get you into a role so they can get a commission and close the chapter. However, with VFA I felt the intentionality in getting both me and the team I would potentially be placed with to answer important questions
As someone who was interested in the continent but kind of didn’t know where to start, this program was a perfect fit that gave me a soft landing.
