Free Workshop for College Students: Land and Succeed in Virtual Internships

Half-Day Virtual Event on Oct 8th Sponsored by The DeBruce Foundation

Kansas City, MO, Sept. 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- When internship opportunities across the nation dropped by 49% last year, The DeBruce Foundation launched the national vShips initiative to assist employers and employees in a pivot to virtual internships and to make the most of these early career opportunities. 

On Friday, October 8th, the Foundation will host a virtual interactive workshop on the Remo platform for college students on virtual internships. This event will help to provide college students with skills and techniques in order to stand out as applicants and succeed once placed as virtual interns. By the end of the workshop, college students will have an updated resume, updated LinkedIn account, their top Agilities identified, accounts to apply for vShip opportunities, a drawing of their career future, and new professional contacts. There will be chances to win Amazon gift card door prizes during the event!
