Recognizing and valuing the intellectual capital that is found in people with disabilities, Lime Connect's corporate partners PepsiCo, IBM, Google, Target, Goldman Sachs, Bloomberg and JP Morgan are actively recruiting current university students - and alumni - who happen to have disabilities for more than forty (40) professional internship and full time career opportunities.

Candidates with all disabilities are encouraged to take advantage of this opportunity.
