Performance Reviews:

Contractors are charged with the task of hitting the ground running on a project and assuming the role as a subject matter expert. This can yield high rates of compensation while also bringing about heightened sensitivity of your job performance. DCA will provide feedback on your role through bi-monthly performance reviews.  These reviews will help you understand how you are performing within your technical role as well as if there are any non-technical issues. In addition, we will share with you any feedback from your project manager. This information is critical in ensuring that you are viewed as a top performer and key to your project’s success. Once you are viewed as a top performer on the project, your manager will be more apt to provide you with an excellent reference or possible extension.

Long-Term Relationships:

DCA provides a seamless transition from one project to the next. We do this by constant communication and our 45-day process. We will be speaking with your manager 45 days before your end-date to determine whether you will be extended or ending your assignment.  We will use these 45 days to submit your credentials to our network of national opportunities that match your career interests.

Exit Reference:

DCA understands that your reputation is the most valuable asset you have as a contractor. We will be contacting your manager during the 45-day process to gather an in-depth reference of your performance on the project. Each project that you complete with DCA will contribute in building a quality submittal package that will allow you to be more desirable as a candidate for future opportunities.

Reward for Referrals:

We offer a monetary amount for any referrals that lead to new business or new qualified consultants/candidates that work in good faith with DCA.
