The value of internships, both to organizations and students is well-known. For organizations, a strong intern program can maintain a pipeline of highly qualified candidates for full-time roles. Internships and other forms of experiential education help students make a seamless transition to the world of work and are a perfect vehicle to increase retention rates, complete short-term projects, and identify future hires.
The Total Internship Management Workshop helps organizations of all sizes build successful internship programs. The workshop is based on the most in-depth research ever to be conducted into the successful management of internship programs and you can be assured that participants will leave the event with a newfound approach to internships.
This highly interactive workshop includes detailed statistics from proprietary research. Qualitative and quantitative responses will be shared from The National Internship and Co-op Study – a detailed examination of what makes internship programs successful based on the responses of over 225,000 students from more than 500 universities.
Five (5) reasons why you should host the Total Internship Management Workshop for employer partners:
- HRCI & SHRM-PDC Accredited – Getting these CEU’s is critical for HR professionals. Six (6) hours of this type of credit can cost up to $1500. We offer this for a fraction of that.
- Community Building – At each of the workshops we present, we engage the local SHRM Chapters, the local Chamber of Commerce regional Economic Development initiatives and other business related organizations. We find that usually 30 to 40% of the attendees are not currently actively recruiting at the school that hosts the workshop.
- The Content of the Workshop – Our methodology focuses on meeting the employer where they are and helping them to develop a framework for success by focusing on the “variables” that lead to an effective outcome. We have found that by focusing on the “variables” we can help them to create more systemic programs.
- The Experience – the structure of the workshop is very engaging. We do not just tell them about how to develop, grow sustain or enhance their internships – they actually spend time working with each other to build a plan that they can put into place as soon as they get bac to the office.
- It’s “low stress” on you and your team – there is very little that you are responsible for other than securing the location and sending invites to your employer partners. We contact the chambers and SHRM chapters. We handle all of the customer service inquiries. We take care of the catering.
Participants will learn how to:
- Effectively implement an impactful internship program;
- Identify future hires through a no-strings-attached 12-week interview;
- Create and maintain a pipeline of highly qualified and educated full-time job candidates;
- Increase your organization’s brand awareness on university and college campuses; and:
- Much, MUCH more!
This workshop has been accredited by both HRCI and SHRM-PDC and by attending you will receive six (6) CEU Credits!

“The Total Internship Management Course was immensely helpful in empowering us to launch our internship program with confidence.

“The Total Internship Management workshop was an amazing course for Intern Managers who need assistance with developing, solidifying, or even fine-tuning their internship programs. I began the course with little to no knowledge of how to manage my interns, and within a week, I have created a full 15-week internship program with the knowledge, tools, and resources from this course! Dr. Robert is an amazing facilitator. I would recommend this course to EVERYONE!”
Development Coordinator | Alzheimer's Association of Orange County
“Prior to participating in the Total Internship Management Workshop, we welcomed interns to join our team, however, did not have a structured program. We quickly realized we needed to create a true “learning environment” for our interns to develop and grow and while giving them an excellent experience. We continue to have success with our program, adopting new ideas and strategies, a result of the foundation we built with through the Total Internship Management 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.”
