WE'VE ALL BEEN THERE...
It’s a story we hear every day. New college graduates leave school feeling hopeful about their job search, armed with a freshly printed degree and an updated resume.
They sit down eager to complete job applications only to find an opportunity that sounds like a perfect fit. It’s entry-level, in their field of study, and are impressed with the company's stellar reputation but get discouraged because even an entry-level position requires 2, 3, or even 4 years of experience.
So, they toss aside the application only to find the same requirements again and again for similar jobs. The hiring companies are now missing out on qualified candidate and the candidate is frustrated and left feeling like they’ve been deceived.
"What was the point of earning a college degree if I can't even get my foot in the door at a company that is hiring!?" Going through that disheartening experience is precisely what fueled the start of Katapult Network.
Here at Katapult Network, we know that the transferable skills recent graduates build while earning their degree are just as valuable as experience in entry-level jobs.
Our innovative SPARK assessment, unique hiring programs, and motivated team are all carefully constructed to allow our partner companies to feel secure in hiring candidates we’ve gotten to know. We’re here to change how the world hires. Experience NOT needed.
Everyone has a unique SPARK
At Katapult Network, we know that diverse companies are better companies and we welcome people who represent the variety and breadth of humankind. For that reason we strive to work with candidates, suppliers, and partner organizations that reflect the communities we serve in regards to race, ethnicity, religion, gender, ability, political affiliation, sexual orientation, socio-economic status, and every unique human aspect that makes up our identity. These are the things that create your SPARK.
Our mission is to remove barriers to getting a job after graduation. To that end, we are committed to removing bias from our hiring process, celebrating diversity in all its forms, and creating a culture of belonging. After all, every SPARK can light a fire. We're here to help you shine.
