Join us to learn about Tallo, an online platform that connects talent with opportunities. The Tallo app assists students in designing a career pathway, educators in recruiting top talent to their schools, and employers in developing a stable, continuous talent pipeline. Students (age 13+) and professionals showcase their skills and abilities in their online profile, connect directly with companies and colleges looking for the next generation of talent, and match with more $20 billion in scholarships.
Ben Martin, VP of Partnerships for College and Industry will outline how college and company partners can utilize the Tallo platform to engage with the future talent pipeline earlier. Hear from Michelle Wu, Engagement Specialist for Client Success, about how Tallo’s partnership with PSAYDN’s three new YouthHubs will utilize technology as a way to increase social, academic and professional equity across the state by providing students with a tool to overcome traditional boundaries such as access to career readiness resources.
