Why hire a Year Up Graduate?

  • Motivated to achieve excellence – our graduates are hungry for opportunities to contribute.  Motivation is the number one attribute we look for when admitting students into the program.
  • Trained in hard skills – graduates complete a rigorous 21 week training program in IT helpdesk/desktop support or (in some cities) financial operations, software quality assurance or project management, followed by a 26 week corporate internship
  • Trained in soft skills – in addition to job-specific skills, all graduates learn and practice professional skills such as business communication and customer service
  • Screened – interns undergo reference checks, interviews and testing
  • Coached – graduates receive intensive feedback and guidance throughout the program from staff advisors, mentors and internship managers
