Chamber of Commerce Launches Professional Development Series for College Interns

Monday, June 22, 2015

 

The Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce has announced a series of professional development programs to improve soft skills of college interns in a new program called Hire Ed.

The six week program will begin on July 8 and will look to help local college interns with a focus on integrity, professionalism, communication, team playing, work ethic and critical thinking.

“We know that one surefire way to hone those skills is by making sure that college students participate in at least one internship program during their four years,” said Tim Murray, president and CEO, Worcester Regional Chamber of Commerce, which helps students find internships. “Hire Ed will provide the next level for students.”

Companies involved with the program include Webster Five, Seven Hills, Unum, ten24, UMass Memorial and National Grid.

Murray adds, “The number one priority for our Chamber member businesses is workforce development and pipeline. The exceptional talent graduating from our local colleges and universities is a huge asset to the business community, and we want to make sure that these graduates are even more marketable to area employers.”

“Quality-of-life enhancement is so important in our efforts to strengthen the young professional community here in Worcester, and we’re very excited to be able to work with the Chamber to highlight great spots in the city where students and young professionals can go to build their social networks,” stated Joshua Croke, one of Action! Worcester's founders.

Hire Ed is a free program and will run on Wednesdays from 3 to 5 PM. Interns will hear straight from hiring directors and HR recruiters as to what they look from prospective job candidates.
