Hiring partners choose to partner with Udacity because they gain access to a highly competitive, hyper-specific candidate pool of Nanodegree graduates. Graduates benefit by being fast-tracked for consideration for open roles at our partner companies, giving them a distinct advantage in their job searches.
Udacity uses Hiring Partnerships as a way to help graduates gain extra visibility - but candidates should not see hiring partnerships as a replacement for a job search. Udacity Hiring Partnerships do not guarantee graduates a job, nor do they guarantee that partners will choose Nanodegree graduates over other candidates. However, Udacity hiring partnerships do provide students a unique leg-up in their job hunt.
When companies sign up to be a Udacity hiring partner, they’re affirming that they believe the Nanodegree Program is valuable in candidates’ journeys to stay current in the market for quickly evolving technical competencies.
