Thousands of college seniors toss their graduation caps each spring ready to hit the job market, forcing employers to sift through a saturated pool of prospective entry-level employees without knowing if the recent grads have the real-life skills to back up their degrees.
Successful companies invest in the next generation of professionals, and through the Dardis Career Partner Program, we can connect you with young employees in our Classroom to Career internship program that are poised to advance your organization into the future.
Students in the Classroom to Career internship program complete formal, skills-based training through the Dardis Academy where they learn important presentation skills, professional image skills, business etiquette, selling techniques and more. Once complete, they spend a summer putting their skills into action selling quality, professional clothing in their communities. The program serves as a crucial opportunity for students to gain real-life, professional experience that will bridge the gap from the college classroom to the business world.
“A partnership with Dardis is an innovative way to reach some of the most driven, achievement oriented and brightest students in the country.”
– Greg Dardis, CEO & President
As a participant in the Dardis Career Partner Program, companies can send a representative to attend the full Dardis Academy training session, allowing them to interact with the students, track their progress throughout the summer and reconnect with them to offer a future position at their company.
Career Partners have full access to Classroom to Career program graduates through an alumni database of resumes, and Dardis also maintains a job posting section on our website exclusively for Career Partners. We communicate with Career Partners throughout the year to connect you with quality candidates that we believe would be a good match for your organization.
Other benefits include:
- Marketing of your brand
- Access to student assessments

Career Partners have unprecedented access to proven, motivated young professionals that represent the best of the best.
