Building Talent Resiliency With Early-Career Tech Talent

Over the past year, there’s been a fundamental shift in the way Gen Z tech talent approaches the job search. High-profile layoffs have shaken confidence in both big-name tech companies and fast-growing startups. Yet the tech contraction has also opened up opportunities for employers in other industries to attract early-career tech talent, while also pushing tech students and new grads to reflect on what’s most important to them in their careers. Join this session to:

  • Understand the larger labor market trends for early-career talent, like what industries and geos are attracting tech talent
  • Learn what Gen Z wants from employers and how any company can build an employer brand that resonates with early-career tech talent
  • Reimagine internships, co-ops, training, and mentorship programs to attract and retain tech students and new grads from diverse backgrounds
