Kicking off summer with TechPointX – your talent multiplier
Are you ready to meet the next generation of tech talent? Finals are over and students are moving to Indianapolis for a summer that will propel their tech careers forward.
In total, TechPoint has created four distinct programs addressing talent needs for our community:
- Xtern — a 10-week internship program for tech-skilled college students
- Xtern Bootcamp — a 3-week training program for high potential tech-skilled college students that will run three times this summer
- Sales Bootcamp — a 6-week training program for new grads and career changers
- IndyX Tech Fellowship — a 2-year program for tech-skilled new grads
Ideally, college freshman and sophomores will start their journey at Xtern Bootcamp. The following year they can apply to join Xtern, and after graduation we hope they apply to be part of the Indy Tech Fellowship.
This suite of talent programs, including Sales Bootcamp, needed its own brand. Today, we are launching TechPointX — your talent multiplier.
Attracting and retaining talent for Indiana tech companies is a core part of TechPoint’s mission. Since launching Xtern in 2013, our programs and the students and new grads we reach has grown tremendously. Now, the talent programs are unified under one major brand name that represents all four of our current programs.
Want to see these programs in action? Watch this short video (which we leaked at this year’s Mira Awards) to hear from the students and the companies we serve each year.
