Connect your business with your city’s brightest technology talent and future leaders.

Hire from i.c.stars!

i.c.stars graduates are available on a direct hire and contract-to-hire through i.c.stars social staffing enterprise.

Since our program began, the i.c.stars leadership curriculum has been recognized by employers as the primary strength behind our graduates. The leadership skills gained during the i.c.stars training program enable our graduates to outperform other junior level talent in business and technology.

The program rigors – participants commit to 12-hour days for four months with no tardies or absences – build behaviors predictive of high performance. These include a strong work ethic, punctuality, and the ability to lead a team, according to Siemens.

In addition, the check-ins and wrap around support graduates receive helps boost retention.
