We are four MBA students from BGI re-imagining how college students and employers interact. Our concept is Hatch, an entrepreneurial enterprise that matches creative, talented liberal arts students with forward thinking businesses. We screen juniors and seniors from the nation’s top liberal arts colleges to become Hatch Fellows. Hatch fills in the gaps of a traditional college education. We help students discover their passions, figure out how to apply their liberal arts degree to business, and develop tools to help them thrive in the 21st century workplace. Finally, Hatch connects Fellows with forward thinking businesses at our inspirational, four day long Summits where teams of Fellows collaborate with Sponsor businesses to solve a problem proposed by our Sponsors. Here are five reasons why your company should partner with Hatch:
- You want the top talent for your business. Hatch recruits Fellows from the nation’s top liberal arts schools such as Skidmore College, Carleton College, and Whitman College. Our applicant pool is made up of intelligent, motivated, and creative students and our program prepares them for the business world.
- You want to know your future employees. Recruiting through college fairs and online databases is a costly and an inefficient use of your company's time. Let Hatch help you find the future employees you need. At our Summit events, you will get a chance to see Fellows in action as they work through real world business problems.
- Fellows want to work for you. A recent study by the College Advisory Board states that 71% of Millennials, the generation that makes up today’s college graduates, are searching for a meaningful career. For Hatch Fellows this figure is 100%.
- The workplace is changing. According to a recent article in Fast Company, “yesterday’s rules no longer apply,” to businesses. Our Fellows will infuse new enthusiasm and energy into your business and work with you to create a collaborative, tech savvy workplace.
- Hatch doesn’t just train Fellows. We bring experts on organizational development to our Summit events so you can learn how to work more effectively with the next generation of American workers.
