Overview

We offer companies multiple ways to engage with i.c.stars:

1. Contract or Direct Hire of i.c.stars Alumni

If you have open job orders, or regularly have full-time hiring needs for technology proficient business associates, you can learn more by contacting Arlene Chandler, Workforce Development Manager, at achandler [at] icstars [dot] org

2. Custom Internship Program

Over the years, we have helped multiple organizations create custom Internships, Project Based Models, and Rotation Programs. These organizations have one of two goals in mind - either they are headcount restricted and can’t hire, but want to participate in a way that also gets work done, or they want to hire, but need to see what i.c.stars are capable of and verify the fit before making a permanent offer. We are meeting the needs of both types of through creation of Corporate Fellowship Programs. To discuss more contact Arlene Chandler at achandler [at] icstars [dot] org
