"The Total Internship Management Workshop was incredible! I really appreciated that the day began by opening the floor to questions the participants would like addressed and the instructor took time to cover each point. Regardless of where your company is at building out an internship, this can help you take it to the next level."

"This workshop was recommended to me by a coworker, and I am so glad it was. The workshop advertised helping intern managers grow and improve their program, so I was concerned it wouldn't be for me as I was starting at ground zero. However, especially if you do not currently have an active internship program, I would highly recommend this workshop. I was given the information and resources to start from the beginning, and to build an internship program with a high ROI right off the bat."

"Don't think twice about registering! Go! The opportunity to learn and network at the workshop is worth it. I went in with an internship program that we felt was pretty solid. After the workshop, not only did I feel more confident in our program (got lots of validation that we're headed the right way), I picked up numerous tips on how to strengthen and support our program as we continue to grow.

“The Total Internship Management Course was immensely helpful in empowering us to launch our internship program with confidence. We've had extremely positive responses from both the mentors and the interns. We're on our 3rd semester of interns and all have given us rave reviews, recommended us to friends and contributed in a meaningful way to our organization. If your internship program could use some help or if you're looking to launch one from the ground up - I highly recommend attending a Total Internship Management workshop in your area!”

LB Testimonial

“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!”

AC Testomonial

“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!”

“The 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.”

Utilizing internships 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 organizations, 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 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 225,000 students from more than 500 universities.
