RECRUIT HIPPO

Helping Individuals Pursue Professional Opportunities

Our "Recruit Hippo" program uses a variety of tools to help students understand and prepare for successful employment.

  • Internship for credit: work-based learning opportunities for school credit.

  • Industry tours: career exploration on site with local employers.

  • Talent advising: in-school guidance on career opportunities suited to a student's interest and skills. Talent Advisors connect students with local employers and training.

  • Soft skills: practicing and improving work ethics, understanding employer expectations, and building critical problem solving skills.    

To inquire about becoming an industry tour site, or offering an internship for credit, please reach out to the business services representative in your area.
