Announcing the Make It in Brooklyn | Talent Connect jobs board
Connecting emerging Brooklyn talent to local tech companies.
July 22, 2019
Over the past five years, greater Downtown Brooklyn has seen an influx of tech companies and startups, as well as new investment from its colleges and universities. Yet despite these advancements, we find there is a disconnect between these burgeoning sectors. And, despite focusing on diversity in hiring, companies tend to source talent from the same elite colleges.
The Talent Connect jobs board is a means for local schools to become feeder institutions for the companies around them, bringing a diversity of experience that is Brooklyn’s competitive advantage. By leveraging DBP’s relationships with the schools and the companies in the area, the Talent Connect jobs board can go above and beyond what a generic jobs board can offer, giving local students a chance to gain professional experience and prove themselves at a tech company, while giving companies the competitive advantage of tapping into a local, highly-skilled talent pipeline.
If your company is looking for local talent, this resource is for you. Tens of thousands of Brooklyn students are available for academic year internships, summer internships, full-time and part-time jobs. The borough’s schools have students studying engineering, computer science, marketing, architectural design, and more.
