Utilizing internships and co-ops is the perfect way to conduct recruiting activities by identifying future hires, increasing retention rates, maintaining a pipeline of highly qualified candidates, creating and building relationships with local universities, and having short-term projects completed by an educated workforce.
For the above to be true, organizations must host effective and meaningful programs. How is this done? What are students looking for? What are the expectations of universities? What can organizations do to make their programs the best they can be?
The Total Internship Management Workshop is designed to help you and your organization build a win-win internship program. Based on the most in-depth research ever to be conducted into the successful management of internship programs, you can be assured that you will leave the event with a newfound approach to internships.
The presentation will include detailed statistics from proprietary Intern Bridge research. Qualitative and quantitative responses will be shared from our latest research project, the National Internship and Co-op Study – a detailed examination of what makes internship programs successful based on the responses of over 125,000 students from more than 500 universities.

Comments from Past Participants
“I’ve personally recruited, trained, and developed hundreds of successful college interns throughout the course of my career and I honestly didn’t think I’d get much out of Dr. Shindell’s workshop – boy was I wrong! I found Robert’s seminar very helpful and beneficial, particularly with respect to the ever-changing laws and regulations revolving around hiring college interns. It’s one thing to recruit a college intern and it’s another thing to “properly” on-board them and successfully have them complete your program. Whether your goal in hiring interns is to provide a path for them to potentially join your firm full-time or you just want to ensure you’re following the letter of the law, I would highly recommend attending The Total Internship Management Workshop as soon as possible.” – Eric Silverman, Principal & Owner – Silverman Benefits Group
“The workshop was extremely beneficial to my organization not only because of the wealth of internship information & resources but also for the networking and connecting the class provided. It was helpful to meet individuals form other organizations in the area. Dr. Shindell is an exceptional speaker and communicator with a wealth of knowledge to share on this topic!” – Kevin Brown, Mowhawk Flooring
“The Intern Bridge Total Management Workshop was time well spent. The format with the employers and academic contacts all in one room is fantastic. The table discussions and the group facilitation with an expert on the topic is terrific. In a sense, it was like a focus group with a captive audience and I came away with some key information on topics that were important to me and our organization.” – Brian J. Case, PPL Corporation
