    The Decatur Area Total Internship
    Management Workshop

    July 27, 2017 | 8:30 am - 3:30 pm
    Develop a World-Class Internship and Entry Talent Acquisition Program
    Location: Millikin University Campus
    Utilizing internships is the perfect way to conduct recruiting activities by identifying future hires, increasing retention rates, maintaining a pipeline of highly qualified candidates, creating and building relationships with local universities and organizations, and having short-term projects completed by an educated workforce.

    For the above to be true, organizations must host effective and meaningful programs. How is this done? What are students looking for? What are the expectations of universities? What can organizations do to make their programs the best they can be?

    The Total Internship Management Workshop is designed to help you and your organization build a win-win internship program. Based on the most in-depth research ever to be conducted into the successful management of internship programs, you can be assured that you will leave the event with a newfound approach to internships.

    The presentation will include detailed statistics from proprietary Intern Bridge research. Qualitative and quantitative responses will be shared from our latest research project, the National Internship and Co-op Study ? a detailed examination of what makes internship programs successful based on the responses of over 125,000 students from more than 500 universities.
