Employer tip!

Marina Marchanka, MA, University Partnership Manager from FDM Group says, “Building awareness for graduates about the tech world opportunities is the most fulfilling part of my job. I think it’s important that while at the university, students embrace the opportunities that their school provides and dip their toes in activities that are outside of their comfort zone. For example, tech majors join a debate club to hone their public speaking and communication skills, and liberal arts majors sign up for the next hackathon to familiarize themselves with what IT & Tech are all about. This will help them develop skills necessary for today’s job market (team work & communication skills, especially), meet new people, and broaden their professional network!”
