Client Services : Preferred Candidate Program

Cost Savings and Increased Productivity

Anticipating the need for highly skilled, productive temporary staff among our legal and corporate clients has led us to the creation of the DayBreak Staffing Preferred Candidate Program. As an extremely proactive, cost effective way to handle support for busy departments, executives and attorneys, DayBreak’s Preferred Candidate Program enables you to build a “pre-approved” group of temporaries to utilize for absences, vacation coverage, special projects and increased workloads.

How does the program work?
Instead of waiting until a need arises for a high caliber temporary, many law firms and corporate clients are bringing our people in to train at their offices, on everything from telephone use & protocols to network document management software, firm macros and time entry. The training, done by your in-house person, generally runs from a half day to a full day; the training curriculum is up to you.

What is the cost to my company or firm?
None. DayBreak Staffing absorbs the cost of training our people and pays them for their time. Since we pay the temps and don’t bill you for the training there is no financial commitment on the firms’ part and the results create a team of temps who are ahead of the training curve.

Can I interview or engage them during training?
Absolutely. As a matter of fact, we encourage you to do so. You can meet them during training to assess their professionalism, verbal skills and adherence to your dress code, as well as your overall comfort with them. It takes the guess work out of the process and produces a higher satisfaction with our temps vs. those brought in “cold” from other agencies.

We are a small firm without a dedicated trainer. Can this program work for us?
Yes, it can. Smaller firms have brought in DayBreak’s people to “shadow” their top secretaries to learn things like a document manager, attorney time billing and any other “firm specific” information you deem necessary. Your person can get them up to speed and critique their professionalism, presentation and performance for you at the same time.

When can I utilize my Preferred Team through DayBreak?

Any Time. 24 hours a day, 7 days a week, whenever a need arises. Our customer service line at 212-557-6868 is manned 24/7 by a “live” person to assist in filling your spot right away. Whether you have an immediate need for someone to cover an absence, an unexpected need like a closing/project, or an anticipated need to cover an extended situation like a leave of absence, DayBreak is ready and at your service.

It all sounds good but how do I find out more about this cost saving, efficient program and how to make it work for my firm?
Allow us to meet with you briefly to discuss the program, your needs, (both anticipated and unexpected), and execution of the program going forward. We urge you to make a list of questions for us to address during our visit so you have complete confidence in our program.

Jonathan Sheppard, President & CEO (, Stephanie Messina, Client Services Manager ( and our internal customer service staff are at your disposal.
