An Easy Transition from College Life to a Career in Technology

The program provides early-career hires with:

  • • 1:1 mentorship with program managers to discuss career paths and growth opportunities.
  • • Training tailored to the associate’s role, focusing on fine-tuning existing skill sets and gaining new, in-demand industry skills.
  • • A professional network of peers and senior leaders.
  • • An opportunity to do impactful work while developing professionally and technically.
  • • An opportunity to pay it forward and mentor the next class of associates.
  • • At the end of the program a graduation ceremony will be held to celebrate the success of each associate and their assignment to a specific team as an experienced member.
