Employer Opportunities

Talent Bridge is a three-month program that connects employers to new graduates that are ready to hit the ground running.

Hiring and training early talent can be expensive and time-consuming for employers. Talent Bridge connects employers to recent graduates that have industry-specific training and applicable licensing. Talent Bridge will help your company build a future workforce with the brightest talent.

Starting in June 2020, selected participants will go through industry-specific curriculum, professional development & professionalism workshops, and complete required licensing. In August, at the end of the program, partner employers will be able to interview participants and extend full-time offers to selected candidates. The selected candidate(s) will start with your company in September!

The first stream of the program will be in the insurance industry. 

The first stream of Talent Bridge will be focused on the insurance industry. We are working with our partner employers to develop the insurance-specific curriculum and professional development workshops for participants. They will also have access to a prepared and capable talent pool of recent graduates, that have already been screened upon acceptance into the program.

Participants will also complete their RIBO license by the end of the program.
