Why use Forage?

  • Work simulations give you the opportunity to complete a work task to see if you enjoy it. 
  • When you sign up to complete a project, you will answer a few questions about your career interests. This information is shared with the employer so that they can get to know you and share emails about future internship and job opportunities. Please only share what you feel comfortable sharing.
  • You are welcome to complete as many simulations as you want at your own pace.
  • While completing simulations is not the same as a formal internship, the flexibility you have to complete many simulations over a short period of time can give you helpful insight into a particular employer or the type of skills you should develop.
  • Did we mention it's free?
