About The Vermont Internships Platform
The goal of Vermont Internships is to support, enhance, and expand the business community in the state of Vermont area by connecting in-state businesses with motivated, capable students, to the benefit of both. Businesses provide the internship opportunities; students provide the talent, and the Vermont Internships platform brings the two together.
Vermont is a place where internships are abundant and business progress is accelerating. Students know that internships lead to jobs – in fact, 7 out of every 10 students who complete an internship are offered full-time employment by those companies they interned with.1 Meanwhile, Vermont companies recognize the value of a qualified workforce – now and in the pipeline for the future. Through the platform, students will connect with businesses to gain real world experience, where they can apply their knowledge and find a path that will encourage them to live and work in Vermont after graduation.
The platform is free for both students and employers. Free for students to search, view and apply for internships, as well as gain access to valuable career resources such as assessment tests, cover letter and resume builders and more. And free for employers to post internship positions and search for qualified students, while gaining access to a plethora of resources around starting and building an internship program.
