“Before joining HATCH, I was a school administrator for 20 years. Working at HATCH has been an eye opening experience. My job duties range from partnerships liaison, talent coordination to repair and maintenance work. The breadth of responsibilities has sharply steepened my learning curve and pushed me to discover my potential."
“HATCH provided me with more than a physical place to work and connect with talents, but a space to dream big. It is my hope that our talents would make use of this platform to enrich their learning and grow in confidence to build their own career path!”
