Why Communities?

I founded Jumpstart on the principle that everyone deserves the chance to build a brilliant career, regardless of where they come from, what school they attend, what they look like, or how they identify. The most successful careers are built on motivations, values and skills, and I truly believe that leveling the playing field for all candidates, and highlighting what makes them great, regardless of the noise, is the way to build a brighter future for our industry, country and world. 

At the foundation of leveling the playing field lies the democratization of access: access to information, to companies, to connections, and to each other. To make strides towards that goal, we knew it was important that we bring our entire community together in one space. That’s why we built Communities, the place for everyone to come together and share, learn, ask and advise throughout their career journey. 

There is such strength in the Jumpstart community. On the talent professionals side, the university and early in career recruiting community is tight knit, dedicated, and crucial to building the future of better businesses. When it comes to our candidates, they are ambitious, talented, and ready to change the world. By bringing them together through Communities, we aim to give them a place to connect and become stronger together. 

There is no reason to let education, background, or even geography, separate us any longer. The world has proven that remote work is not only successful, but can even provide advantages for companies and for people. Allowing for our community to flourish completely virtually is essential, because with remote work comes remote recruiting. Communities are a foundational and fundamental part of advancing recruiting and career growth from steps in a pipeline to an integrative experience that doesn’t have to begin or end with each job search, but that can support and carry you throughout your career.
