What is NEST FLIGHT
NEST Flight is a career development conference for young professionals (17-24) hosted by Digital NEST, packed with inspiring speakers, hands-on workshops, powerful panel discussions and one of a kind networking opportunities — all crafted to help students like you propel their careers, no matter where you are in your job exploration!
LETS DO THIS
Your career plan is a work in progress and with the right opportunity you're going to make it happen!
WE'VE GOT YOUR BACK
We’re a community of professionals, mentors and peers ready to push open the doors of opportunity for you, just as others did for us.
THE REAL YOU
Your culture, education, life experiences, talents, family, friends and the place you call home — they’re all important to your career because they all make up who you are.
The conference really inspired me, helped me connect with key people in the region and as a result I landed a job at a local tech firm.
I absolutely enjoyed everything about the conference. I greatly appreciate all of the networking opportunities that were given to us, and I hope to attend next year. Thank you very much for what you are all doing.
My favorite part was getting advice from my mentor during lunch, and Guy Kawasaki telling us about his life, and what drove him to where he is today.

Dear NEST Flight 2022 Attendees & Supporters,
The ongoing COVID-19 situation has been an unprecedented challenge for everyone, both personally and professionally. Our hearts and thoughts go out to those who have been infected with the virus or who have lost loved ones.
We have been closely monitoring CDC guidelines and county-wide COVID19 cases, and in order to provide a safe and comfortable experience, we’ve decided to transition NEST Flight 2022 into an EXCITING virtual conference for a second year.
Our NEST Flight 2022 virtual experience will keep our tradition of providing college-age youth with a high-quality event where attendees will find inspiration and motivation from our keynote speakers, workshops and panels, walk away with tools to continue building their career journeys, and build their networks by connecting with other young professionals and company representatives through a fun networking experience.
2020 and 2021 have come with many changes and difficult challenges, but I’m confident NEST Flight 2022 will provide a positive and rewarding experience for all of our young attendees!
We look forward to seeing you online in May of 2022!
Build your skills, networks and new career paths.
See all that is possible for your professional future, understand why diversity matters, and learn how to be part of a truly inclusive workplace.
Find opportunities and people that will help you realize your career aspirations.
