Has anyone else here ever signed up with Apollo 51, the Mekanism program meant to help interns from diverse backgrounds find jobs?

Has anyone ever helped you? Or reached out to you because of it? Has anyone here been offered a job from joining it?

What has your experience been? Good or bad.

1. Yes.
2. No. I always forgot I signed up until they send out an invite for some event one of the Mekanism partners is speaking at. Maybe others got more out of it.
