Tech Collective’s 2014 Fellowship Program connects recent Rhode Island college and university graduates with local IT and bioscience employers.
Funded by a Governor’s Workforce Board of Rhode Island (GWB) Jobs Initiatives Grant, Tech Collective's Graduate Fellowship program aims to build the workforce pipeline and fill talent gaps on two levels: (1.) providing industry employers with qualified candidates to potentially fill their open positions; and (2.) providing recent college graduates with hands-on industry experience and employment opportunities within Rhode Island.
1. RI IT and bioscience employers send us open entry-level job positions
2. We recruit applicants from RI colleges and universities
3. We evaluate and match positions with candidates, then make recommendations to employers
4. Employers conduct interviews and select Fellows
Tech Collective is currently accepting job descriptions and graduate cover letters and resumes. Fellowships will begin in June and run 10-12 weeks. Fellows are paid a $600 weekly stipend – half is paid by the host company and half is funded through GWB (companies can pay Fellows a higher stipend amount if they wish). It is anticipated Fellows will be considered for hire upon successful completion of the program.
The Fellowship program is open to recent RI graduates of bioscience or IT/CIS studies. Fellowship candidates must have graduated within the last six months from a RI college or university and must have earned a 2 or 4 year degree in a bioscience or IT/CIS related course of study. Graduates of industry-recognized bioscience or IT certificate programs will also be considered. Once selected, Fellows will participate in a work-readiness orientation before the start of the program as well as periodic group meetings throughout the program.
Please submit your cover letter and resume for consideration. Currently available Fellowship positions:
Now in its third year, the Fellowship Program has hosted 14 participants. Many have gone on to be hired by either their host company or another company following the program. Previous Fellowship cohorts:
