“Even though these students have professional work experience, they may not have it in this new area. We want to help them get their foot in the door, and to have an opportunity to to interview. At the very least, it’s a chance for our students and alumni to practice those particular career skills,” Program Director Hollie Lee said.

They have partnered with three companies so far, but hope to expand soon.

The school’s partner companies include Alpha Omega IntegrationCoastal Cloud, and Definitive Logic
