RESTON, Va.--(BUSINESS WIRE)-- Stride, Inc., the nation’s leading provider of online and blended education programs, announces its 2nd of a 4-part webinar series called My Career Connections, as a way for high school students nationwide to learn and apply for open opportunities with industry-leading hiring partners.
This live online series will put students in front of major organizations for a shot at over 50,000 potential opportunities that include internships, externships, actual entry-level jobs, and more.
This week’s collaboration is with CVS Health. Students are invited to register for the session with CVS Health now. It will take place February 24th at 11:00 AM Eastern.
Students will hear directly from hiring managers and company representatives on how to search, apply, and interview for open opportunities, find associated career paths in different fields, and have the chance to ask questions.
