Chamber, colleges unite to create intern clearinghouse

The Greater Richmond Chamber, in partnership with the University of Richmond and Virginia Commonwealth University, recently launched RVAIntern.com, a website through which businesses in the Richmond region can recruit qualified interns from colleges and universities in Central Virginia.

The one-stop site allows employers to submit their internship needs simultaneously to seven schools. Prior to the site's launch, businesses had to visit the websites of each of the seven participating schools to post opportunities to each one.

Michaels opens at White Oak Village

The eagle has landed

A noble golden bird swooped in for a landing and a week of restorative nesting June 4 as the Wyndham Virginia Crossings Hotel & Conference Center lowered its landmark golden eagle from atop the Jefferson Building.

The 3000-pound eagle sculpture was removed by a 160-ton crane, the largest available in the commonwealth, under the supervision of the Glen-Allen based Chesin Construction Company.

After some delicate maneuvering, the bird was brought to earth and laid in a specially-prepared “nest” on the side of the Jefferson Building, where it will be repaired and re-gilded.

Business in brief


Comfort Zone Camp, a nonprofit bereavement organization for children suffering the loss of a parent or sibling, will relocate its headquarters effective July 2. The new location is 7201 Glen Forest Dr., Suite 301, in Glen Forest Office Park. Comfort Zone’s move was prompted by the current landlord’s offer of a generous incentive to terminate the lease one year early in order for the landlord to expand his medical practice. Comfort Zone found space at a competitive rate and will achieve significant savings with the upcoming move. All phone and fax numbers will remain the same.
