Recruiter.com Partners With the 1,000 Dreams Fund to Help Young Women Succeed
Recruiter.com has formed a research partnership with the 1,000 Dreams Fund in order to bring light to current challenges faced by young female professionals.
Farmington, CT, September 6, 2016 (Newswire.com) - Recruiter.com, an on-line global recruiting and career service, announced today its new partnership with the 1,000 Dreams Fund, an organization which helps young women across the U.S. secure scholarship funding for their high school and college education.
“Christie Garton and the 1,000 Dreams Fund has been opening doors and providing opportunities to young women since their inception,” says CEO and Founder of Recruiter.com, Miles Jennings. “We are confident that our partnership with this quality organization will help create opportunities for students, job seekers, and young professionals alike.”
“We are pleased to partner with Recruiter.com, an industry leader in the career space,” said Christie Garton, Founder of 1,000 Dreams Fund. “We have a bold goal to provide 1,000 young women with scholarship funding. Our partnership with Recruiter.com will help us achieve our goal by bringing our message and data to a new audience and by connecting the dots from college to career.”
Garton, an award-winning social entrepreneur and founder of the 1,000 Dreams Fund, created the organization when she realized the importance of extracurricular experiences in fulfilling both her own dreams as well as those of other young women. Many young women cannot pursue the experiences they seek in realizing their dreams, due both to lack of funding and the crippling burden of student loan debt - which lead Christie to take action.
The teams of the 1,000 Dreams Fund and Recruiter.com will work together to research the complex issues relating to the job market and creating quality professional opportunities for young women. Through surveys, research, and content, they will explore current opinions, present solutions, and bring light to the many challenges faced by young professionals.
