Once enrolled, the next step is for an intern to attend a webinar delivered by the Program Coordinator. This webinar is about an hour in length and is delivered on a Sunday afternoon at a time convenient for all the college students. The webinar covers three main topics:
- Building your personal brand through a compelling and rich media focused LinkedIn profile. We also cover the need to groom your other social platforms to ensure that the content is consistent with your brand and appropriate to a young professional worker.
- Creating a 1 to 2 minute personal video which is used to introduce the intern to a potential business, promote the intern in a compelling way, and provide potential employers with meaningful insight into what an intern might look, talk, and act like in a business capacity.
- Crafting or upgrading the intern's personal resume. Resumes are usually a least common denominator document used to assess candidates for a role in a company. The interns in the C-Legs program are taught how to build a resume which will differentiate them from other college students by creating resumes that are visually compelling with rich media, and give a potential employer holistic view of the college student.
- After watching this webinar, each intern has about 2 months to complete their LinkedIn profiles, shoot a video, and draft a resume. This activity usually takes until late November or early December.
