Every year we bring on a cohort of scholarship students who are matched with a professional mentor and participate in a series of monthly touch points which prepare them to apply for internships and entry level jobs. Throughout the program, students and professional mentors cover topics like resume review and job coaching, interview preparation and informational interviews, job exploration and shadowing, networking and coveted internship opportunities.
Career Accelerator’s annual event is the Career Expo. In the Spring, Career Expo hosts HR professionals from various companies to inform and interview our scholars regarding job and internship opportunities within their organizations. The event kicks off with a diverse panel focused on inspiring and empowering our students. The event also includes interactive workshops and panels that enable our scholars to identify their strengths in turn making them more confident and prepared for their career paths.
