Greetings FLO Alumni,
Whether you are near or far… college-bound, college-present, or college-graduated, we hope all of you are healthy and safe during this unprecedented time. And, while the Covid 19 pandemic has influenced our global society on a large-scale, we know you are diving head first into this new ‘reality’ and doing what it will take to meet your needs, reach your goals, and fulfill your dreams. After all, life is different, but it’s still full of possibility.
This is exactly why, at DiscoverU, we’re excited to announce a new partnership we’ve launched with CareerSpring, a non-profit (501c3) organization that helps first generation college students realize their greatest career potential through career information, a Network of professional contacts, and job placement services.

Not just Resources, but a Network that Has Your Back
The resources on CareerSpring’s Platform are made possible by a Network of individuals and organizations who believe that first generation college students have the preparation and intellectual capacity, a set of life experiences, and grit necessary to add significant value to our workforce.
