The CareerSpring Talent Pool
Resilience. Grit. Determination.
As educational pioneers in their family, FGLI students embark on uncharted territory to navigate the path through higher education and personal advancement. Courageously, they make this journey without the intellectual and social capital that facilitates the upward advancement of so many in our society. But what FGLI college students lack in context and connections, they overcompensate for in determination, preparation, and potential.
These young people have followed our country’s guidance throughout their education and have reached the milestone that could transform their life and our communities forever. They are successful professionals just waiting to happen. But they need help. With the right guidance, the right resources, and the right doors opened – FGLI college students can become incredible assets to any organization they join.
Jessica A soon-to-be graduate from Georgetown University, Jessica is eager to gain new skills and meet new people through internships that can lead her to run her own nonprofit one day.
Blanca A rising senior at Smith College, Blanca aspires to pursue a career in social justice through non profit work or legislative action through law school.
Carlos A student at the University of Texas at Austin, Carlos attributes part of his success to his incredibly supportive parents and dreams of a thriving career in investment management.
Chrislord Currently at Bentley University, Chrislord believes in learning from those who have already succeeded which is why he prioritizes networking with professionals in his fields of interest.

The CareerSpring Network Works
