Everyone knows the value of internships, but does your organization run a strong intern program that maintains 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.
On April 5th at The City College of San Francisco, The San Francisco Chamber of Commerce, SHRM Northern California, the California Internship & Works Experience Association and San Francisco State University will welcome Dr. Robert Shindell from Intern Bridge, the nation’s leading research & consulting firms to share a newfound approach to internships based on in-depth research and proven strategies. In this full-day, highly interactive and participatory workshop, 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!
Check out some of the comments from part participants in this unique event:
