The purpose of the second National Symposium on Video Interpreting: Video Remote Interpreting was to explore current practice in video remote interpreting (VRI). This symposium addressed where VRI is being done, and who's doing it. It explored current practice, research, and implications for the field of interpreting by looking at applications in both signed language interpreting and spoken language interpreting.

· To inform participants about the current practices within video remote interpreting 
· To inform participants about research being done within remote interpreting 
· To encourage the formation of a community of practice among video interpreters 
· To encourage research about aspects of video remote interpreting

Employers can use BCL to post internship and job availabilities, view students' resumes, and sign-up for information tables, on-campus recruiting events, mock interviews and register for the bi-annual Internship and Job fairs.
