What's the RI Nexus College Tour?

Through RI Nexus and its College Tour, the Rhode Island Economic Development Corporation aims to forge a deeper connection with Rhode Island’s college students, with a focus on retaining the students in the state after they graduate. The RI Nexus College Tour will encourage students interested in information-technology and digital media to remain in Rhode Island to fill high-paying, entry-level jobs in the sector and to use the resources offered through RI Nexus — such as the job and internship boards and company profiles — to further develop their talent and knowledge of the ITDM sector.

At each stop in the College Tour, RI Nexus Program Director Jack Templin will provide an overview of the state's burgeoning info-tech and digital media sector, show students how to use the tools and resources of the RI Nexus community, and lead an open discussion on the program.
This event is open to the public.
