Event description

Description

It can be difficult to find meaningful employment after college graduation. We are here to help! Our FREE nationally recognized program helps recent college grads find paid internships and full-time job opportunities. We have established many relationships with employers in the Triangle area that are seeking talented individuals in a wide variety of fields.

This has been made possible through a grant provided by Duke Progress Energy in partnership with NC State University.

The impact Backpacks to Briefcases has made in the workforce is immediately recognizable. Through our initial launch in 2012, we were able to place 82% of our college graduates in internships and 66% in full time positions by the end of 2013. B2B participants have felt success in gaining internships that channel their degrees earned through school.

*Participants will be required to attend our week long job readiness workshop that will prepare participants for the span and breadth of their career.

For more information please attend our upcoming interest meeting on:
