Can't find a role that fits?

Let us know what kinds of opportunities you're looking out for based on your background and previous experiences!

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.
