10:32:40 >> Matthew Liptak : its very comprehensive
10:33:03 >> John Capozzi : Do you need a free IT intern this summer?
Please check out On Ramps to Careers is a non-profit that focuses on getting more women and underserved DC students in the industry. We placed 200 DC students in virtual IT internships in summer 2020. Would UI be interested in an IT Intern this summer? They come at no-cost.
10:33:07 >> mercheley beuns to All panelists : @Matt would you be willing to share your program?
10:33:27 >> Catherine Hansen to All panelists : My last company had an internal mobility program – the key was streamlined interview process. In other words, an employee doesn’t have to go through a slate of interviews for a new internal role. Maybe 1-2 ppl
10:33:33 >> Matthew Liptak : it was my last company..but I can share details
10:33:37 >> Matthew Liptak : ping me on linkedin
10:33:45 >> Catherine Hansen to All panelists : And we looked for transferrable skills and potential (vs exact experience)

10:38:07 >> Matthew Liptak : with my own teams, I have always encouraged to go after internal roles if they want to grow
10:38:26 >> Matthew Liptak : there has to be career development conversations
10:39:08 >> Brad Mumpower to All panelists : It’s a balancing act, but necessary to develop that employee and ultimately keep them – better for company and employee alike
10:39:30 >> Matthew Liptak : as a leader you cannot be selfish with your team members
10:39:42 >> Brad Mumpower to All panelists : 100%
10:39:43 >> Matthew Liptak : you have to allow for a career track
10:41:55 >> Matthew Liptak : knowing how hard it is to find a good recruiter, I still pushed my team to seek career growth
10:49:33 >> Catherine Hansen to All panelists : Agree Tara. Managing, say 10 hiring manager with 10 niche roles means 10 work streams. And reduced capacity
