Connecting students with disabilities with employers who value talent.

Citi logo

Citi thrives on the diversity of its people.

"Since I don’t have a left hand a lot of people would ask me how I manage to type or use a computer. However, that is not a concern as I have learned it from the earliest age and am fairly fast with computers and still manage to also employ my left hand while typing (something I learned from early on)."
