STAR Program for Employers

Software Talent Program

The Software Talent Attraction & Retention (STAR) program was created to attract, retain and develop software talent in Michigan.  Components include:

  • Monthly newsletters that promote employers, events and opportunities
  • Quarterly in-person talent mixer events 
  • Premium access to Anonymous profiles of available software talent
  • Employers can present opportunities to the anonymous profiles, and if there is a match, there is a small “connection fee” paid by the employer for an introduction

Employer Membership

  • As part of STAR you would have access to experienced software talent profiles as we get them. 
  • Full access to the entry level talent database which includes over 325 college students and recent graduates with an interest in the Ann Arbor region. As part of STAR you would have full access to resumes for this portion of the database.
  • Your company and job postings featured in our monthly newsletter that goes out to hundreds of developers. 
  • Free admission to quarterly Software Talent Career Mixers
  • The annual membership fee is $5000.

Al La Carte Offerings


Employers that do a job posting with Amy Cell LLC will have their opportunity and company profile information sent to the STAR participants.  Jobs are also posted on dozens of job boards, and marketed heavily via social media and networking.

Job posting fees:

  • $500 for internships,
  • $1000 for entry level developers
  • $2000 for experienced developers


Employers that identify a specific SOFTWARE TALENT profile of interest can have their specific job posting or company information presented to the candidate.  If the candidate is interested and still available, the employer can be introduced to that candidate for a referral fee of $500.  These folks are usually only available for a short period of time, so if interested, act quickly.  Details and profiles are available at:
