uConnect & Forage

Forage provides bite-sized 5-6 hour virtual work experience programs that give students a genuine career advantage with Fortune 500 companies.

With our Forage integration, uConnect users can add hundreds of free virtual job simulations directly to their virtual career center platform. The programs empower students to build the practical skills employers are looking for, increasing their likelihood of landing a job and interviewing effectively.


Forage’s bite-sized virtual job simulations take an average of five hours to complete and simulate projects or tasks that employees at a particular company would complete. Forage courses are automatically available, for free, in the backend of your uConnect virtual career. Once you publish an experience from Forage, it will automatically show up on your public-facing Experiences library. 

Seamless student experience

Once the experiences are accessible, students will be able to view a short preview of the content on uConnect. If they choose to click on any Forage experience previewed in the widget or on the experiences library, a new tab will open that will pull up the entire experience on the Forage website, and allow the student to pursue it if interested.

Promote equitable access

Forage programs are free, virtual, and open access 24/7, so students can complete virtual job simulations on their own terms and at their own pace, removing barriers to entry. 

Drive targeted engagement 

With our experiences widget, you can use our tagging system to pull Forage simulations into relevant career communities.
