INTROSHIPS

Welcome to the 2022 Introships Program.

Learn more about potential career paths than you ever thought possible, and hear what successful company leaders wish they had known when they were your age!

 

The 2022 program will consist of 3 parts:

  • Company Presentations. For 6 weeks (May 23-July 1) there will be a company presentation/Q&A every day for an hour (M-Th at 5:30PM ET, Friday at 9AM ET). Twenty of the presentations will be for everyone, and then there will be ten presentations from companies that are more local to Atlanta, Charlotte, or Norfolk/Virginia Beach. So each student will have access to 30 presentations and Q&A sessions- see the list below.

  • Reinforcement and Mentoring. During that time, Sean Wetmore will have reinforcement sessions with each student, in a small group, twice a week following company presentations.  Sessions will allow participants to reflect on what they learned, prepare for future sessions and build skills necessary for completing a successful job search.

  • In-Person Networking. If it’s safe, selected companies will bring interested students into their offices for OPTIONAL in-person sessions during the month of July for a lunch, a half-day, or a day. These sessions will usually take place in Atlanta, Charlotte or Norfolk/Virginia Beach.

 

All students will get company presentations from executives at the following 20 companies (or similar ones). The company calendar is not final and will be updated periodically.
