Power Biz Hour presented by TD Bank: Recruiting UNH Students with Raina Sprague
Many Chamber members have expressed interest in learning more about getting involved with internship and career programs at UNH but remarked that they do not know where to begin.
To help close this gap the Chamber is partnering with the Career and Professional Success (CaPS) team at UNH. Their mission is to imbue career preparedness across the entire UNH experience to equip UNH students with the experiences, knowledge, and skills to thrive in an ever-changing future.
