College tech talent flocking to thriving Indy ecosystem for summer
What does this mean for companies?
TechPoint is once again hosting a spring Xtern Finalist Day to accommodate increased company interest and the outstanding pipeline of talent still eager to get to Indy for an ‘Ultimate Tech Internship Experience’ of their own. Here’s how TechPoint’s Xtern program can help your company with talent needs this summer:
- Matching and placement services to connect you to the right candidates based on your team’s needs and your organization’s vision for growth and impact.
- Full-service support for your interns outside of the 9-to-5, including housing arrangements in downtown Indy, social connectivity opportunities to build cohort connections and affinity for the city, community service programs, city immersion experiences, and professional networking to welcome them to the Indy tech ecosystem.
- A talent retainment tool to entice top-performing interns to commit to your company upon graduation. TechPoint encourages former Xterns to accept an opportunity in Indianapolis—particularly with companies where they served as Xterns. Once they arrive to start work, we will support their onboarding to the city through a series of tailored events and experiences post-graduation through the TechPoint Grid program.
Why should you take part?
Maybe you only picked up one or two Xterns during Finalist Day, and now wish you had another to take on an additional project? Or word has spread throughout your organization and other teams are jealous that you locked in an intern for the summer. Remember that we can fill sales, marketing, business analyst and other positions in addition to the tech side of the house. Maybe you didn’t take part and are now regretting it.
Whatever the case may be, there is still time to find stellar talent for your team this summer from TechPoint’s exceptional recruitment efforts that resulted in 1,900 applications from 210 universities and 45 home states.
