Underground Elephant employees worked with students to emphasize career advancement and professional development in technology and marketing. Students from San Diego State University also participated in one-on-one meetings with executives, and had the opportunity to learn more about careers in marketing and technology.
“San Diego has a vibrant business and technology community and we want to do all that we can to encourage the next generation of entrepreneurs, executives and employees to keep their talent here,” said Jason Kulpa, CEO of Underground Elephant. “We’re proud to share more of what we do and who we are with local students.”
In his pursuit to support the education of the next generation of students, Kulpa feels it is important to foster and support professionals at all levels. Underground Elephant also participated in the Learn Academy Tech Crawl, which allows adult students first entering the coding field or switching career paths to glean insights from successful professionals. Students ranging from 25-40 years of age were afforded the opportunity to tour the company’s office and also participate in Q&A sessions with Underground Elephant developers.
“We’ve worked incredibly hard to build the company and culture that we continue to foster at Underground Elephant,” said Kulpa. “A large part of UE’s foundation has been shaped by hiring college grads, so being able to share all that we’ve accomplished and encourage local students to join the community that we’re a part of here in San Diego, is one of the best ways we can give back and stay involved.”
