Apprenticeships and Internships Are the Real Deal

January 30, 2017

SPRINGFIELD, Mass., January 30, 2017 – The Regional Employment Board of Hampden County presents “Apprenticeships and Internships: The Real Deal” at the Colony Club, Tower Square, 1500 Main St., Springfield on March 8, from 11:30 a.m. to 1 p.m.

David Cruise, president and CEO of The Regional Employment Board, joins Keith Valley, Training Manager for American Outdoor Brands, in a dialogue about how apprenticeships are evolving as a new job creation/career development model. Their discussion focuses on how apprenticeships are good for business and how they can benefit companies as a workforce development resource.
