On April 23rd, SUNY Potsdam, The St. Lawrence Chamber of Commerce and the Associated Colleges of the St. Lawrence Valley will welcome Dr. Robert Shindell from Intern Bridge, the nation’s leading experiential education research and consulting firm, to share a new approach to internships.
We expect the Total Internship Management Workshop to fill up quickly. Click here to Register! *SUNY Potsdam has underwritten a majority of the costs to bring this workshop to St. Lawrence County (Regular prices are $359/$299). Contact Mike Besaw at Mike@slcchamber.org with any questions.
The Total Internship Management Workshop has been accredited by both HRCI and SHRM-PDC. Attendees will receive 6 CEU credits. Just a few of the topics based on in-depth research and proven strategies that will be covered in this full-day, highly interactive and participatory workshop include:
- Effectively implementing an impactful internship program;
- Engaging interns with meaningful work assignments;
- Identifying future hires through a no-strings-attached 12-week interview;
- Creating and maintaining a pipeline of highly qualified and educated full-time job candidates; and
- Increasing your organization’s brand awareness on university and college campuses.
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.
A recent NACE survey found that only 8% of intern tasks involved clerical and non-essential work responsibilities. The other 92% was higher-level work such as data analysis, problem-solving, and logistics. A quality intern can contribute to your company’s productivity immediately.
Later, interns who become full-time employees at the one-year mark are almost 30% more likely than other hires to still be at your company.
