Whether you need a succession plan, innovative ideas and thinking or are looking to help groom the next generation of talent, an internship program could be just what you need.
Whether you're starting from scratch or looking to bolster your current program, our hands-on workshop is designed to leave participants feeling confident in what it takes to start or enhance an internship program. The ideal time to attend a training is three months prior to bringing an intern on board.
Workshop Description and Speaker
West Michigan colleges and universities have teamed up with internship expert Cindy Brown, vice president of talent initiatives with The Right Place, to provide you with free training opportunities to help your program succeed.
Following Cindy's presentation about the framework of building an internship, you'll hear a personal experience from an employer who started from scratch and built a program from the ground up. Then you'll heave from a college or university representative about the recruiting process. You'll have ample time to ask questions and even brainstorm with others who are in the same situation as you.
