Staff from Bell Techlogix recently spent the day with Indianapolis high school students to discuss careers in technology and assist them with interview skills. Bell Techlogix was among five tech companies invited to participate in Technology Day at Salesforce with Jobs for America’s Graduates program, also known as JAG. The organization’s goal is to reduce the dropout rate among youth who have serious barriers to education and employment. Sixty high school students from JAG attended the event to learn about tech careers and receive advice from professionals in the field.
The event included a panel discussion about careers in technology and a speed networking session in which students practiced interview and networking skills. Bell Techlogix commits to several activities throughout the year to encourage youth to pursue careers in STEM.
