Train-to-hire partners that we work with do not always require a degree or prior IT field experience, however, many do require at least an associate degree for consideration.
This process is mainly driven through our partner, who completes the sourcing, evaluation, hiring, and training to prepare new hires to work with their clients. The graduate is then hired as a W-2 employee under the IT staffing firm, instead of the client company to the staffing firm.
In most cases, our students have signed 2-year contracts with the staffing firm, and will undergo extra training, which may include more certifications paid for by the staffing firm. Once assigned to a specific client, rarely will a contracted employee be assigned to a new client company. Note: the contracted train-to-hire employee can be “converted” at any time to a full-time employee of the client company.
Requirements for this type of career opportunity can vary by client, though a bachelor's degree is a common qualification for consideration.
The career services team works to continually develop our employer partnerships and is also looking to develop a program for internships and/or apprenticeships, which may help to open this opportunity for those students who may not possess a bachelor's degree.
Note: Students who accept a traditional job opportunity will work directly with the hiring company to determine compensation and all other terms of employment.
