A new initiative in Volusia and Flagler schools will give students a chance to gain experience in the workplace.
The portal is being developed by Palm Coast-based Coastal Cloud, which has built a reputation for using technology to help businesses grow.
“It’s a simple portal that will allow an employer to say, ‘I have a job opportunity, I have an internship, I can do a company tour, I can do a job shadowing, I can come in and do a lecture or a classroom presentation,'” said Coastal Cloud managing partner Sara Hale.
In addition to employers, educators and academy and flagship program coordinators will play a central role in the portal’s operation. They will arrange the opportunities for their students to learn more about employment opportunities and career goals.
