"I really like working at Direct Consulting Associates as an IT Recruiter. DCA was my first job directly out of college, and I couldn’t have asked for a better company to start my career. We have a great balance between working hard and having some fun. We are trained on how to be successful in this business by management. I have been here six months and have already gained so much knowledge on how to be successful in this business while also enjoying what I do on a day to day basis. We are a close knit group that cares for each other instead of a huge organization that only cares about the dollar amount coming in the door." -Shayla Jastrzebski, IT Recruiter at DCA

Emphasize Technology & Training

At DCA, we invest in you. We understand that to be considered an IT industry leader, a company requires leading- edge technology and continuous training.  That’s why we continually make significant investments in technology and ourselves.

Our commitment to quality and being the best is evident by our on-going recruitment training programs. Your first day of training at DCA begins on your first day of work. Your last day of training is the day you separate yourself from our firm. We consider ourselves as part of a “practice” much like that of a lawyer or physician. In other words, we continually study our business and markets in order to learn the latest, continue our professional growth, and surpass the competition.

We’re sensitive to the challenges career women face in business. That’s why we created a “Women in Business” Group for the DRI & DCA female professionals.  They get together each month to discuss various timely topics.

DCA is Involved in Community Service & Events 
At DCA, you can make a difference to our community and people's lives!  Every year we participate in the “Race for the Place” 5k presented by University Hospitals Seidman Cancer Center to celebrate National Cancer Survivors Day.

Another charity that we work with is the Leprechaun Foundation of Cleveland, which fills toy chests in Cleveland area hospitals for children who are in treatment for serious medical conditions. This year, our teams at DRI and DCA were able to fill 3 large boxes with a variety of toys, games, and crafts for ages 17 and under.

This summer we also participated in The 6th Annual Cleveland Kick-It!
Kick It is a corporate kickball tournament to help raise money for children’s cancer research. On August 20, 2015, Northeast Ohio corporate teams competed for the coveted “Best Kickball Team in Cleveland” trophy and make a difference in the lives of children with cancer. Kick-It has one simple goal – to accelerate a cure for children with cancer.
