Boston media have taken note of Worcester’s thriving college community in an article written by correspondent Matt Rocheleau, in The Boston Globe. Among his observations, Mr. Rocheleau points to the vast number of economic development projects underway and the efforts to retain the students after they graduate to bolster the residential and workforce populations.

The Chamber’s Higher Education Business Partnership aims to capitalize on this valued segment of Worcester’s population by providing more opportunities including a career fair and Start-Up Worcester just to name a few of the new programs offered. A new service, offers a way for local employers and college students to connect for internship opportunities.
