Welcome to FindSpark, an online and offline community dedicated to setting up every young professional for career success and connecting employers to top, diverse early career talent. We’re here to inspire you, connect you, and give you the tools and resources you need to discover and follow your passions, meet people from diverse backgrounds who will support you in your career development, and push you to be the best you can be.
We know the job hunt can be lonely and daunting, career development is hard, and oftentimes the career advice you find is irrelevant and outdated…which is why we started FindSpark.
FindSpark is committed to supporting diversity & inclusion in the workplace and the careers of people of color, Jews, Muslims, those who identify as LGBTQ, veterans, and underserved individuals.
You are welcome in the FindSpark community. We’re stronger with you in it.
Our programming, events, and resources are actually useful and connect you to top companies in NYC and Chicago (more cities coming soon), mentors, and other young pros.
We teach you the skills you need to find, land, and excel at your dream job or internship. Or figure out what your dream job is…because that’s a huge challenge in itself.
We started FindSpark because we ourselves faced the experience of being recent grads without jobs — lonely and in a new city. We found that putting ourselves out there and meeting people at events, although difficult and nerve-wracking, was extremely powerful and helpful in shaping our careers.
FindSpark makes it easy to make new connections, start interesting conversations, and provide you with the resources to maintain your soon to be growing network.
FindSpark employers work with us to support their recruitment, diversity and inclusion, and employer branding goals, To learn more about how you can connect with our members as an email, check out findspark.com/employers.
“I love FindSpark events because they teach professional principles while being light-hearted and casual. Everything is easier when you feel like you’re in a comfortable and welcoming environment.”
“I just wanted to send a very big THANK YOU for the networking event. As soon as I entered the building, one of your friendly volunteers made me feel calm even before I entered the elevator. The speakers were terrific and their messages were definitely helpful for future career development.”
“Every week, the FindSpark Weekly Opportunities Newsletter fills me with excitement for the job market.”
“This was the first FindSpark event I attended, and it certainly won’t be the last! I left the mixer feeling motivated and inspired by both my peers and the many opportunities that I learned ARE, in fact, out there.”
Our event speakers care about our community members, and they want to help you reach your next career goal by offering insight, mentorship, and guidance.
