Building on JumpStart career forums since 2004 and UGrad forums since 2010, we launched a STEM and technical careers approach in 2016. Recently, more than 100 of our UGrad JumpStart Network members entered the tech industry. Specific to our diversity forum, 70% percentage of attendees were invited to 1:1s w/corporate partners on site at our forum.
Our partners attend JumpStart diversity forums to engage with our talent pool focused on professional development , expose you to specific industry and functions, feature the company – culture – people, and ensure an understanding of the recruiting process all while getting to know you.
Individuals attend to JumpStart their game plan to pursue competitive careers, engage with our partners, get 1:1 time with partners, and network with peers seeking similar career progression.
