Forage is an online platform that provides free, open-access virtual experience programs. UNC students can engage in Forage’s simulations to experience work at top companies like JPMorgan Chase, Lyft, EA and BCG. These self-paced, immersive opportunities equip students with real-world skills, help provide a career advantage and connect students with Fortune 500 companies. You can access the full course catalog here. Develop your skills and gain a real understanding of different roles and sectors by working through these self-paced modules, with tasks similar to those you would undertake during a traditional internship.
During these virtual projects, you will work through a set of materials and tasks set by the participating companies, which are designed to replicate the sort of work that you would undertake as an intern or graduate. All of the Forage programs are self-paced (taking between 5 to 6 hours to complete) ensuring that you can fit your participation flexibly around other commitments.
