Advanced Hires’ own Tina Rock spoke at i.c.stars’ High Tea, a daily highlight of the i.c.stars program that brings together Milwaukee’s up-and-coming talent with business and technology executives for a cup of inspiration. It was a wonderful opportunity to speak with an up-and-coming group of IT stars. Tina said, “The energy among the group of interns was palpable and brought excitement to me as I ponder how Milwaukee is working to become a Tech Hub.”
High Tea is one of the most unique and inspiring executive volunteer experiences. A guest speaker from the Milwaukee business or technology community is introduced to each i.c.stars intern individually, giving them 1-on-1 exposure to community leaders, senior executives, and entrepreneurs. After introductions, the guest speaker leads a discussion about his or her career and approach to leadership. i.c. stars is expanding and building a bridge to companies and motivated, capable, and highly talented young professionals.
Advanced Hires remains involved with many other initiatives. Advanced Hires is extremely involved and connected when it comes to preparing future professionals for a career in IT. We are positioning ourselves within the market for cultivating talent, and look forward to growing relationships with the young people today who will become the IT leaders of tomorrow.
To become a “Star”, one has to go through an intense application and interview process, commit to 12 hour days for 16 weeks, and not be even late to one day. The commitment level is incredible and gives the interns a level of experience equivalent to an Associate’s degree. Once they graduate, interns are available on a contract, contract-to-hire, or direct hire basis. Do you want to learn more?
