ALBUQUERQUE, N.M. (KRQE) – A portal to connect New Mexico college students with employers is officially open.

The Students Work portal is designed to help students gain more professional experience while in college and better prepare them for the workforce.

“To gain that on-the-ground knowledge, that experience…that all we provide in higher-ed just can’t meet without that opportunity of that internship,” said NM Higher Education Department Secretary Barbara Damron.

The website will allow students to find a position they’re interested in and intern with that company.
