Rock Hill

Talent Pipeline Program

Stand Out and Be Found. Right Here in Rock Hill.

The Talent Pipeline Program is a program funded by the Wells Fargo Foundation which the City of Rock Hill was awarded. We are looking to build upon the success of the Talent Pipeline Program and move beyond the pilot program. It is designed to build supportive relationships among educational institutes, technology based businesses, and students in the area. The grant will be used to pay for 1-half the cost of internships for up to 38 students.

Purpose of the Talent Pipeline Program

The purpose of this project is to build relationships between local students and local employers. Students are matched with employers based on the skillset that employer is looking for. Local businesses are challenged to find new employees with the skills necessary for a hands-on experience. The ultimate goal is to develop these students and their skills through effective experience.

Who are we targeting?

The Talent Pipeline hopes to recruit students pursuing computer science, business administration, and digital information design degrees. These majors encompass the desired technology-based skills of the participating businesses within the Talent Pipeline Program. Students should be entering their junior or senior year at Winthrop or completing the third semester of their Computer Technology Associate Degree (concentrations include Programming Specialization and Advanced Wed Programming).

I am indebted to the Talent Pipeline program for my success during college and after college. I’m thankful for the opportunities and experiences it presented me with. The internship I was placed in evolved into a full-time position upon graduation, so that’s awesome.
