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 referred 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 by cutting through the competition and getting directly referred to industry-leading companies.
When companies sign up to be partners, 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.
