WIT is closing the talent gap for women in technology through WIT Career ConneXions in partnership with Emory University.
This program plans to change the trajectory for training and hiring women by partnering with the right forward-thinking companies who believe there is more to a person’s talent than a 4-year degree.
We understand there are women who have nontraditional backgrounds, some have left the workforce to care for their families and these companies want to work with them to create learning and working environments where they can thrive.
Whether you have a four-year degree or not, whether you have technical skills or not, our mission is to train, promote, and advance all women everywhere in rewarding technology careers.
If you are like so many women, you may be late in starting your career. You may have taken a career break to care for your family and are now faced with the difficult challenge of figuring out how to find a job. Do you find that you are not qualified for the jobs that you need to have and the only jobs you can take pay minimum wage?
If this sounds like you, know that WIT CAREER CONNEXIONS is here to help.
Through WIT Career ConneXions, we can accelerate your progress with getting a job through our hands-on technology training through one of the most prestigious universities in the US, Emory University.
We have already changed the lives of so many women and we know we can do the same for you. Read some of our testimonials.
