Virginia employers recognized for internship programs
RICHMOND –The Virginia Talent + Opportunity Partnership (V-TOP) today recognized 100 recipients of the 2023 Top Virginia Employers for Interns Awards.
The annual award recognizes Virginia employers who provide high-quality internships to students. Some of the noteworthy efforts of employers include exposure to senior leaders, structured mentorship programs, housing allowances, paid time off, security clearances and training for industry certifications.
“All the award winners demonstrate a commitment to meaningful internships,” said Peter Blake, State Council of Higher Education for Virginia director. “High-quality internships enhance a student’s educational experience and strengthen our workforce.”
The Top Employers for Interns Awards mark one of several ways the Commonwealth celebrates Virginia Intern Day when employers, students, colleges and universities are recognized for their participation in work-based learning opportunities. Governor Youngkin signed a proclamation recognizing Virginia Intern Day on July 27, 2023, aligning it with National Intern Day. In addition, a video was created to recognize the award winners.
“I have the privilege of advocating for Virginia businesses and I want to acknowledge those employers providing internship opportunities here in Virginia,” said Barry DuVal, president and CEO of the Virginia Chamber of Commerce. “The 100 recipients represent a distinguished group of employers that help cultivate talent here in Virginia for the betterment of its students, regions and the commonwealth as a whole.”
“To the 2023 Top Employers for Interns, not only are you the backbone of Virginia’s economy but you have the pulse of the changing skills necessary for career success,” said Kirk Cox, president of the Virginia Business Higher Education Council.
