Every student deserves a great internship.
At Rubin, we make it happen one e-lesson at a time.
Emerge, our signature online platform for employability and business communication, is the premier resource for virtual internships.
Through online (or printable) curriculum modules, we provide a library of 100+ real-world exercises that simulate an internship and challenge students to improve their writing, speaking and interpersonal skills.
Total available instructional time: 60+ hours (enough material to engage students for 16+ weeks).
And students can do all the work safely from home.
The Skills Interns Need and Employers Expect
We provide self-directed readings, videos, assignments, quizzes and digital achievement badges (see the sample “Email Etiquette” badge above) across 15 core topics. Each topic gives interns hands-on practice for life in an office setting and beyond.

Through live, virtual instruction from an internship coordinator/educator (synchronous) or self-directed online assignments (asynchronous), Emerge is there with pinpoint guidance.

To make virtual internships even more seamless, Emerge integrates with the most popular learning management systems (LMS) available today.
Through an LMS integration, students do not need a separate username and password for Emerge. They can complete all Emerge assignment from their LMS course page.
