Part 2 of 3

Technology is the obvious choice since they are so dependent upon it. Submitting a resume or application online is second nature to a group who took exams and applied for college online.

When crafting job posts or company profiles, highlight projects they may work on, mentorship opportunities, and potential advancement tracks.
