Intern Project Highlights
Our Spring 2023 Intern JD Fuller researched, produced, and edited a dynamic video essay on autism in the workplace.
Our Spring 2021 cohort started the channel, which has become an excellent resource for all you need to know about Gen Z !
Using the research from our intern blogs, we use this page to share our key insights on working with difference generations!
A integral part of our internship curriculum is the required completion of our online course that focuses on developing the interns' emotional intelligence and empathy.
- We know that emotional intelligence is often called a 'soft skill' by business leaders, but we believe it's one of the most necessary skills that Gen Z can develop before entering the workforce.
- 2In our work as corporate trainers, we engage with lots of different thought leaders. We use a diverse range of perspectives to inform elements of our course and provide support for our curriculum.
- We have seen remarkable growth from our students while going through this professional development program. Employers, professors, and coaches have also reported a significant improvement in the students EQ skills.
What Our Students Say
On a professional level the CRI really sharpened my writing skills and made me more versatile. On an interpersonal level, it gave me a stronger awareness of my own empathy and how I can use it help others flourish.
