ExperienceIT is an experiential training program, created by four downtown Detroit based companies, in an effort to bridge the gap between what the schools are teaching at local colleges and universities, and current hiring needs.
Today, the partnering companies are Blue Cross Blue Shield of Michigan, In-House Realty, GalaxE.Solutions, OneMagnify, Quicken Loans and Amrock. We also have three partners, including training partners, Detroit Employment Solutions, Grand Circus, SEMCA and talent partner, Workforce Intelligence Network (WIN).
ExperienceIT has a very diverse student population. They range from young adults just entering the workforce, to established professionals looking to refine or expand their technical and/or application skills.
ExperienceIT was established in April 2012, under the name IT in the D. In April of 2014, the program underwent renovations, and the team felt it was only appropriate to rename the program to align with its mission of providing its students with an intensive experiential IT training experience.
