I am very excited to announce that Jessica Cox, my most recent intern and 3rd to complete an internship with Webbright, has graduated in May, 2013 from Virginia State University with an honors (Cum Laude) bachelors degree in Marketing.
I had the special fortune of meeting Mr. Jonathan Young, Director of Corporate Relations at Virginia State University and Chesterfield Chamber of Commerce board member, through the Chamber where he was the Member of the Month award for his contribution to the community. I got to learn about a couple of incredible business initiatives Mr. Young created for VSU students. One of them is a Business Week, were the university hosts guests from industries to speak to students about working in the “real world” and provide constructive feedback on their business skills through role playing scenarios. In addition, Mr. Young created and teaches a Professional Enhancement/Career Launch course where guests from industry facilitate student group discussion with a different focus each week.
Webbright is very pleased to welcome Chelsea Jackson to our internship program. Chelsea is a sophomore at Virginia State University working on her Bachelor’s of Science degree in Management Information Systems. Chelsea has been an active student at VSU working as a Student Activities Office Assistant and a Sophomore Class Vice President. Chelsea will be working on her Inbound Marketing certification while applying her new skills and knowledge to help with Webbright's marketing campaign.
