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:
“Great session. We have an established program with 70+ summer interns at more than 15 locations but I still learned a lot about how we can improve our program. Walking away with a list of ways to improve and action items; great session and well worth the time.”
“I had not seen an agenda so I was not sure what to expect. Great PowerPoints and handouts. In the last 30 years I have been to dozens of workshops. Dr. Robert's is in the 2% of all presenters I have had the opportunity to hear.”
“Better than I anticipated! Great and relevant to our business needs. Dr. Robert did a great job of sharing practical ideas to help develop and grow internship programs. Liked the light hearted and fun approach. Great event connecting regional academic and businesses together!”
