Welcome to the Accelerator!
The Accelerator is Hire KC’s job board for internships, projects and jobs, but it’s way more than job board! It helps youth discover opportunities and occupational interests, to chart pathways toward work-readiness, and show and prove what they know and learn along the way.
We source, curate and create all kinds of experiences and opportunities, and put them all in a single portal so students and schools can easily find them. The Accelerator is powered by ImBlaze, and is designed for students. Hire KC is the intermediary for employers to post and host internships, projects and jobs.
Your students directly create their own Hire KC account, selecting their school from the pre-populated list of KC-area high schools and regional colleges. If you or your school already use ImBlaze – you’ll want to have your students create an account with a different email.
Hire KC can help support your school with additional inventory of experiences, and can assist with mass coordination and preparation for immersive internships and projects.
Employers can reach thousands of students in the Hire KC network, and recruit for your internships and job opportunities. You’ll be able to choose from a qualified, diverse population of intern-ready students.
Employers who want to post internships, projects and jobs for students 16-24 must first register with Hire KC. Then, you’ll receive instructions on posting and more.
We help school and student intermediaries connect your students to Hire KC, as well employer- or industry-based intermediaries to centralize student activities for member companies, and the mass coordination of brokering and managing experiences across many organizations.
