Tech Kids Unlimited, a NYC-educational technology not-for-profit which helps teach computational thinking and tech skills to students ages 7 to 21 with special needs, received a generous check from Averity.
The donation to TKU was from The Averity Fund set up by Averity. In connection to this, Averity announced that The Averity Fund would additionally donate $1,000 to Tech Kids’s Unlimited for every client placement during the holiday season.
When the opportunity to start The Averity Fund came about, Allaire, who has two kids of his own, knew he wanted to invest in the future. Allaire and the Vice President of Averity, Alex Dubovoy, who is also a father, brainstormed ways in which they could give back to the community. With a close family member who is diagnosed on the autism spectrum, Dubovoy optimized his search for an organization invested in both tech and helping kids with learning and emotional challenges. He ultimately came across TKU and the rest is history! (Read Alex’s story here). The Averity team paid a visit to TKU’s Sunday workshops on January 27 to present the big check.
Chris and colleagues at Averity were amazingly helpful in connecting me with exciting opportunities, supporting and communicating with me through the entire process. I definitely recommend Chris and Averity if you are looking for a new job.
I have been in the industry for 20+ years and I can easily say that Averity,, and specifically Erica and Pete go above and beyond in trying to make the whole job hunt process as smooth as possible. They spend a lot of time understanding your objectives and ensuring there is a strong match with opportunities they introduce to you. And then walk you through the negotiation process by leveraging their experience and insight into the clients' needs.
Averity should be the gold standard, not only for recruitment teams, but for job searching in general. After applying for a job I saw on LinkedIn provided by Averity, Mark took the time to understand my background and compare it to the needs of their business clients. He reached back out to me to let me know of job openings that would be better suited for my skill set, and even connected me to his colleague Chris to suggest some more. I had an abundance of options just through Averity, and they took care of a lot of the communication with the companies and helped prepare me for upcoming steps. They were both available by text or call (and I've never been sent to voicemail), would call regularly to check on how interviews were going, collected my thoughts and feelings on everything from the company process to my interests, and even covered for each other if one was out sick. This was the perfect team dynamic and communication that made the process surprisingly stress-free.
I recently interacted with Chad Goldstein from the Averity company. When I talked with him for the first time, he collected all the basic information from me: what I am looking for, min salary, etc. Then we talked about some open positions for which he thought I could be a good fit. Once I confirmed which one I liked, he submitted my application and handled the scheduling. I provided him feedback after each interview, and he always asked how it went. He only pushed forward my application, once he and I were on the same page. He also took care of my compensation package and in the end, he negotiated a higher salary than I had initially dreamed of. I know, If I need to find a job (and I hope not!), My first call would be him. He won’t spam you with multiple positions; he pre-filters for you and only sends you what is worth your time.
My experience working with Averity and more specifically Stephanie Grosso, has been really amazing! I can not recommend Stephanie enough. She has walked me through all manner of processes in the interviewing process for multiple companies. Futhermore, she provides excellent career guidance.
Once again, if you are looking for a new role, please reach out to Stephanie Grosso specifically.
