  • Most effective internship recruiting practices;
  • And much, much more!

Helping Employers Create Intentional Internship Outcomes (July 9th @ 10:30am CT)

Is a Structured Internship Program Really That Important?
Absolutely! As one of the key determinants of the level of satisfaction with their internship experience, students indicate that the more structured the internship program is within their host organization, the higher their level of overall satisfaction.

When an intern completes their experience they become an ambassador or adversary. This outcome is largely dependent on how well the host organization executes the experience. Well-organized and effective internship programs have the potential to greatly benefit a company, it is important to remember that unorganized programs have their consequences as well. 92% of surveyed professionals agreed that an internship could help the recruiting brand of an organization; yet only 29% thought that an internship program has the potential to hurt the recruiting brand. Of the students who reported having taken part in an internship, 96% agreed that they had shared their experiences with friends, and 99% of students who had not yet taken part in an internship agreed that they would share experiences with friends. This is one of the largest disconnects between organizations and students, which should caution organizations that a lack of knowledge and preparation could yield negative returns in recruiting talent.

If you want to better help your employer partners develop or enhance their internship programs, then join us for this unique and one-of-a-kind learning and sharing opportunity.
