Application Launch Week

iScholars Launch

Application period for freshmen and sophomores is now open!

Every student should be workforce ready

The iScholars program exists to help students learn to find their own internships/jobs and excel in those roles once you're there. We're excited to open our application and begin the process of finding the next cohort of iScholars that we can help discover and achieve their career dreams. But our vision for impact at Virginia Tech is bigger than just the limited number of students we can admit to the program each year. We believe the entire student body should be workforce ready and resilent, so we're hosting several activities and events to help you improve your ability to find your own internship and excel once you get there.

Professional Headshots courtesy of iScholars April 11th Turner Place 10:00 am - 4:00 pm

Is your LinkedIn profile picture not the best representation of you? Have you gone to make a LinkedIn profile and then stopped becuase you didn't have a professional headshot? We want to help you look your best online and create a personal brand that reflects the awesome things you're capable of. Just like you would never show up to an interview not dressed professionally, you shouldn't publish a professional profile without a professional photo.

The iScholars team will be outside Turner Place from 10:00 am - 4:00 pm on Thursday April 11th taking professional headshots and sending them strait to your inbox. Sign up for a specific time or just come by and see us.

UPDATE:
Our first headshot day filled up in three hours! We decided to add another headshot day on Aprl 17th so more of you could take advantage of this opportunity. Get those spots while they last!

We want everyone to feel confident about their resume and some of the best advice you can get is from those who review resumes all the time. We've reached out to companies and asked for them to spend sometime with you giving you advice for how to put your best foot forward. Register for the Virtual Resume Review event below on April 16 from 12 - 1 pm.

Join the mailing list and we'll send you updates about our launch week events as we announce them so you can take advantage of all the awesome ways we're helping students find internships and get ready to crush it at the internship you might already have.
