ABOUT THE PROGRAM: JumpStart NYC is a FREE educational program to help unemployed, experienced business professionals find new career paths by re-tooling them to work at smaller firms, as consultants and/or in new industries. The next JumpStart NYC bootcamp begins on April 16 – 27, 2012, (Monday – Friday) including a “green/sustainability” track providing supplemental information on the “green/sustainable” businesses in New York City for participants who are interested in joining New York City’s exciting “green/sustainable” community. A key element of the program matches participants for a ten to twelve-week pro-bono consulting project (referred to as a “consulting fellowship”). The project enables you to develop new skills, while enabling the project companies to leverage talent and gain insights from an extremely experienced pool of talent.
DATES: The dates for the next JumpStart NYC classroom session are Monday – Friday, April 16-27, 2012, with the projects commencing in the middle of May, and continuing for ten to twelve weeks (half-time). The bootcamp takes place at the SUNY Global Center, 116 East 55th Street (between Park and Lexington), New York, NY. Please apply on line at: http://www.Levin.SUNY.edu/jumpstartnyc/participant
We know – based on our experience – that the program has demonstrated benefit to those who have participated; particularly for those who realize that retraining to work in different businesses could be helpful to them.

|Eduware, an educational software company, recruits primarily from SBU through the Career Center Oct 31, 2011 – 9:30:24 AM|
STONY BROOK, NY, October 31, 2011 – Hiring Stony Brook University students is essential for one local business owner, who this semester alone has added five more to a staff that consists of more than 25 Stony Brook students and alumni. Eduware, a Smithtown-based educational software company, recruits SBU students through the Stony Brook University Career Center for a variety of roles, including, computer programming, graphic design, office management, customer support, social media advertising and more. Owner William Stevens actually relocated his business from Huntington to Smithtown three years ago to accommodate employees traveling from the University.
Stevens, a retired public school teacher, has hired more than 50 students and alumni in the past three years and hundreds since he began recruiting through the Career Center in 2000. Today, his staff consists of 26 SBU students, many of whom come from the Computer Science Department; some are also pursuing degrees in business, sociology or one of the sciences, and some are alumni.
