Free workshop for middle school students: Land and succeed



Kansas City, MO, September 27, 2021 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) – When internship opportunities across the country fell 49% last year, the DeBruce Foundation launched the national vShips initiative to help employers and employees in a pivot towards virtual internships and to make the most of these early career opportunities.

On Friday October 8, the Foundation will organize an interactive virtual workshop on the Remo platform for college students in virtual internship. This event will help provide students with skills and techniques in order to stand out as candidates and be successful when placed as virtual interns. At the end of the workshop, students will have an updated CV, an updated LinkedIn account, their best Agilities identified, accounts to apply for vShip opportunities, a drawing of their professional future and new professional contacts. There will be chances to win Amazon gift card door prizes during the event!
