Let’s Talk Internships for High School Students at IACAC and IB Conference

With the increasingly complex landscape of college admissions in the US, counselors have the challenging task to manage the expectations of students, parents, and universities. Supporting students to identify their goals, their skills, and their values, find the right college and major for them that aligns, and then secure a spot on the right degree at the right institution is no simple task and real-world work experience is so often the missing piece of the puzzle in the journey. 

The Virtual Internships Foundations summer program provides guaranteed, structured internship experiences with companies around the world, supported by personal and professional coaching and real-world industry feedback. Our unique facilitated internship model empowers students to identify their goals and skills, and importantly be able to articulate their experience through college essays and future internship applications. 

With the above in mind, July is an exciting month for our K-12 team. Not only are they delivering the Virtual Internships Foundations summer program to our 2022 intake of high school interns from around the world, but they will also be attending both the International ACAC Conference and the IB Global Conference raising awareness of our guided internship programs for students in grades 9 -12. 


First Up: International ACAC Conference

From July 12th – 15th, we will be exhibiting at the International ACAC conference at the University of New Mexico. The International ACAC Conference is an annual gathering of college and career guidance and admissions professionals across the world. 


Next Up: IB Global Conference

Following the IACAC Conference, we will hop from New Mexico to California for the IB Global Conference (16th-19th July) in San Diego to join 1,500+ international school professionals, ranging from school leadership to teaching staff to share how Virtual Internships can provide curricular and co-curricular programs within or alongside the International Baccalaureate program.
