Hilton Garden Inn Fargo, 4351 17th Avenue South
Has your company considered hiring interns but you don’t know where to start? Have you used interns, but the experience was less than ideal? Do you have a successful internship program and would like to hear what other companies are doing?
Current statistics indicate that nearly 75% of internships result in an offer for a full-time permanent position. Increasing the number of successful internships in the region is likely to have a positive impact on the number of local college and university students staying in the area after graduation.
For employers looking for the best college-educated employees, an internship program may be the best way to build a pipeline of talented, young professionals. Businesses will be able to tap into the top creative talent with cutting-edge skills. Companies that develop a process to effectively manage interns also get more value from their program and do a better job of converting interns into full-time employees.
At this training, a panel of professionals whose companies have successful internship programs will discuss:
- Why their internship programs have been successful
- Best practices for working with interns and what not to do
- Tips to effectively manage interns
- Advice for businesses that have struggled with internship programs or those that have never had interns
To help us prepare for this session, please take a few moments to answer two short questions.
Panelists include Michelle L. Colvert, employment representative, CCRI; Shelby Cochran, director of operations, dogIDs; Annie Wood, director of community relations, Emerging Prairie; and Christie Evanger, manager of nurse education, Essentia Health.
Also hear from representatives from these local colleges and universities:
