The Career Pipeline Program Experience:
What Students Say?
We are excited to highlight students who have passed through our career pipeline and are now prepared
to take the next steps on their journey to success. Here’s what some of the participants had to say:
As a young black woman, The Career Pipeline challenged me to think about my space within the corporate world. I am currently a rising senior comparative women's studies major on the pre-law track at Spelman College, an area where my peers look like me, I appreciated being in The Career Pipeline with people who had different experiences than I had. I would encourage other young women to apply to this program and be exposed to other views.Courtney J. HarrisWomen's Studies Major – Georgia State University
The Career Pipeline Program gave me a family of mentors that I will look to for my professional life. The program gave me a family of peers that I will have the pleasure to grow, lead, and serve with for years to come. I would encourage anyone to be a part of this crucial program.Nigel WaltonSenior Religious Studies and Public Policy Major – Georgia State University – Collegiate 100 President – Georgia State University Intern – Career Pipeline Program Intern
The Career Pipeline Program initiated by the 100 Black Men of Atlanta was a program that enabled me to become a better version of myself and take my skills to the next level. I really appreciate the mentorship, knowledge, and tools the speakers, and leaders poured into me. I wouldn’t change anything about the experience!David SwillumSenior Communications and Marketing Major – Oglethorpe University – Collegiate 100 President Elect – Oglethorpe University Intern – Career Pipeline Program Intern
