Open Access 2022

A 2-day career readiness and professional development summit for students and early career professionals. Hosted by HubSpot's Education Partner Program.


When you're just beginning your career it can be challenging to find the right path to get started. Despite having developed your hard and soft skills, sometimes there are topics that still seem difficult to navigate - especially as you're developing a network and exploring new opportunities. 
Open Access was designed to help make this transition into the workforce a little easier. Our program focuses on addressing information inequity, especially for students from traditionally underrepresented backgrounds and those who may not have access to networks in their field of interest. Participants will engage with industry professionals and participate in networking opportunities and hands-on skill development.  
This is a 2-day virtual event hosted from Friday, September 23rd to Saturday, September 24th, 2022. It is open to students and early career professionals interested in marketing, entrepreneurship, business management, sales, and tech. This is an opportunity to join discussions with peers and industry experts while strengthening your overall career development and professional growth. 

What to Expect


Insight from Industry Professionals

We will be joined by speakers from HubSpot, Tik Tok, IBM, LinkedIn, and a number of other organizations looking to connect with students like you! You'll hear their thoughts on topics ranging from landing a job in tech to navigating imposter syndrome. 


Networking & Professional Development
