Our Passion / Mission

WIT Career ConneXions, in partnership with Emory University, is changing the trajectory for training and hiring women by partnering with the right forward-thinking companies who believe there is more to a person’s talent than a 4-year degree.

They understand there are women who have nontraditional backgrounds, some have left the workforce to care for their families and these companies want to work with you to create learning and working environments where you can thrive. 

Whether you have a four-year degree or not, whether you have technology skills or not, our mission is to train, promote, and advance all women everywhere in rewarding technology careers.

Are you a recent graduate looking for a well paying job?

Is your resume lacking job experience and companies are not calling you back?

If you are late in starting your career or you took a career break to care for your family and are now faced with the difficult challenge of figuring out how to find a job. You find that you are not qualified for the jobs that you need to have and the only jobs you can take pay minimum wage.
