GuideOn officially placed our first Veteran to the Stanford Ignite program, a program within the Stanford Graduate School of Business.
Amanda Taplin, Air Force Combat Veteran from San Antonio, TX, will be attending the Ignite program this coming summer. For the past 6 months, we have been evolving a partnership with Stanford's Business school to not only place Veterans in their program but also place Veterans in jobs.
The Ignite program is a one month crash course in entrepreneurship. It is designed to prep potential entrepreneurs for a career in technology. Recently, Stanford has created a program exclusive for Veterans. In our first year working with Stanford, we submitted five GuideOn candidates. The process for submission was resume creation, one on one coaching by our Candidate Services team, and completing an interview with a Stanford representative. We are so proud of Amanda for her recent acceptance into the program and we have one other GuideOn candidate on the waitlist. This is a very competitive opportunity, but we have no doubt we will provide the bulk of their veteran candidates next year. If you are a veteran and interested in this opportunity, please contact GuideOn Candidate Services.
