Virtual Work Experience Programs

Build the skills you need for the job you want. Both soft skills and technical skills can be built through various experiential learning opportunities to complement your classroom studies.

A virtual work experience program is an opportunity to do real or simulated work that you would do at a particular company. It could include small projects or tasks.


The University at Buffalo School of Management has partnered with Forage to provide top-notch and free virtual work experiences. 

Forage’s Virtual Work Experience Programs give you the opportunity to learn from top companies and set yourself apart. In self-paced virtual programs you will learn the skills companies look for in new hires before they hire you. You'll complete tasks that mirror real life, watch video instructions from actual employees, and compare your work to model examples.

Complete a small paid, professional project. These are small projects that companies need done but do not have the time or staff to devote to them. From working directly with an entrepreneur to supporting a large enterprise, you'll have the opportunity to explore different roles and company cultures in a way that fits into your schedule.
