Tuesday, April 14, 2020 | 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM EST

At Wentworth Institute of Technology, two co-ops are a graduation requirement for every undergraduate student. How do students who have social skills deficient get past the interview and have workplace success? Learn how Wentworth is making it work and how you can, too.
