Forage is an open access platform designed to unlock exciting careers for students by connecting them with company-endorsed Virtual Work Experience Programs. Virtual Work Experience Programs are online programs that contain a series of resources and tasks designed to simulate the real-world experience of starting a career. In a nutshell, Virtual Work Experience Programs on Forage are designed first and foremost to help students. By completing a Forage Virtual Work Experience Program, you will better understand the diverse and exciting career pathways available to you and build the skills and confidence that will set you up for success.

Think of it like a risk-free opportunity to try out a career in a leading company. The main differences are that virtual internships are open to all students (no applications), you can’t make any mistakes in a virtual internship (no pressure), and the best part is these opportunities are truly digital. You can complete them in your own time, from anywhere in the world.

Forage works with leading companies to understanding what skills they are looking for in a successful college graduate and what an employee in their organization does day-to-day. They use an innovative tech platform to help build the skills you need to be successful and online modules and resources that replicate a day in the life of an employee. As you complete each module of the virtual internship, you will unlock real work samples to show you how employees at that company would have approached each task.
