About the Webcast:
You can't get a job without experience, but you can't get experience without a job. The gap between being employable and being employed has always been a challenge, but COVID compounded that challenge even more. Micro-internships may be your answer!
Micro-internships can take students through those first steps in their career journey. These short-term work experiences grow skills, build resumes, extend networks, instill confidence, and are a great option for companies that are looking for creative solutions to project work as well as for insight on a potential new hire.
Never heard of micro-internships or not sure if it's a right fit for your company? Join us on Tuesday, April 13th, where we will have representatives from three local colleges (Augustana, EICC & WIU) that will educate employers on the ins and outs of micro-internships as well as the value this type of work can bring to you and your organization.
