Through the partnership, job seekers who are active on PowerToFly’s platform and enrolled in Springboard’s courses can connect with like-minded career-changers, receive one-on-one mentorship, hear from industry panelists, and build the skills necessary to land a dream job.

“We’re beyond excited to join Springboard in our shared goal of providing more opportunities for people looking to make career shifts, while also promoting a diverse and highly-skilled pool of workers to companies that are committed to strengthening their DEI hiring practices,” says Katharine Zaleski, co-founder and president of PowerToFly.
