Forage believes that talent is evenly distributed, but opportunity is not. It wants to build a world where every student has the opportunity to build vital career skills and industry knowledge for free, and in so doing, give everyone the chance to discover and land their dream job.
Forage flips the traditional “hire then train” recruitment model to be a “train then hire” one. On one hand, it partners with companies to develop curated “experiential programs” and skills-based content to heighten the career discovery and work-readiness of students; on the other, it partners with schools and colleges to distribute and bring those programs to life.
Today, millions of candidates explore Forage virtual experiences to learn more about the unique and compelling work companies have to offer. Hundreds of firms (e.g. Goldman Sachs, BCG, JPMorgan, Accenture) around the world currently showcase their work and career paths on Forage. The company's global reach means it can make a direct impact on the world’s future workforce in ways no other company can.
