We place importance on the future leaders of our company—those who have recently graduated from a university and joined Jacobs. We accomplish this through our local graduate-development programs and our global program, the Jacobs Future Network. These programs help recent graduates build career skills, learn about our business, network with other recent graduates, and get exposure to our senior leaders. The objective is to offer recently hired college graduates a process to engage them with a professional environment while they transition from an educational environment.
Our Jacobs Future Network program includes many of the following types of activities:
- Mentoring programs
- Classroom training
- Virtual training
- Lunch and learns
- Networking and social events
- Self-study development resources
The Jacobs Future Network also hosts Jacobs Future Weekends, where participants learn more about Jacobs, spend time with senior leaders of the company, and engage in team building and networking activities with graduates from around the world.
