CAREER READINESS EVENTS
BRIDGING THE GAP BETWEEN POTENTIAL AND OPPORTUNITY
The future belongs to those who are prepared for it. That's why we create career readiness events for the next generation workforce. Our carefully curated UPstart Career Readiness Workshops strive to bridge the gap between potential and opportunity.
What we do
Our career readiness events inspire and inform the next-generation workforce. Since our founding in 2017, we have reached students from 65+ schools across the country including Columbia University, Lehman College (CUNY), Seton Hall, Western Connecticut State, Rutgers, Hofstra, BMCC (CUNY), Cornell, Brigham Young, UCLA, Pasadena City College, Kingsborough Community College (CUNY), SUNY Binghamton, University of San Diego and many more.
Students, new graduates and leaders from the biggest global brands have given us much appreciated accolades. Connecting people with UPtions is what drives us in fulfilling our mission. Our community has space for everyone.
Our speakers work at the world's leading brands and universities— including Accenture, TikTok, JPMorgan Chase, NASA, Netflix, Meta, Estée Lauder, BlackRock. They are diverse, accomplished leaders and experts who are passionate about helping college students and new graduates find early success. By sharing their stories, they reveal unexpected career opportunities and paths.
Kamina is a dynamic individual and tireless supporter of those in need. Her selflessness and desire to serve is refreshing and motivating. Human UPtions is positioned to be a leader in the future of work as career opportunities will be more predicated upon who you know, not what you know.
