UST Step IT Up

UST Step IT Up is a global talent development program designed to help organizations like yours bridge the IT talent gap.

Work with UST, we are changing the workplace and allowing the ability to hire hard-to-find resources, thereby lowering the cost of resource acquisition. You can source candidates from an existing Step IT Up program or work with UST to develop a customized training program that aligns perfectly with your talent needs and builds skills over a 4–7-month period. 

The impact we created

Build a diverse team

According to the Diversity in Tech 2021 Hiring Report, only 30% of the tech workforce identifies as Black, Asian or Hispanic, and gender diversity is only 25% female compared to 47% for all other industries.

UST Step IT Up organically recruits candidates from diverse backgrounds to meet your organization's Diversity and Inclusion (D&I) goals.

UST Step IT Up is an approved National Apprenticeship Program by the Department of Labor and a Department of Defense SkillBridge partner.
