Details & Time Frame
Building a "Farm Team" for your Organization: Talent at Your Fingertips
For some reason, most people don’t understand the impact that a great internship can have on their organization. Many look at interns as either a burden or as affordable labor for menial tasks, rather than understanding that interns increase productivity, improve morale, raise public profile and act as a talent pool for future positions.

In this virtual session, participants will learn the basic roadmap for creating a successful internship program. This includes:
• The Four Cornerstones to a Successful Internship program:
o Structure, Training, Supervision, and Metrics.
• How to create a structured work plan
• How to effectively onboard and train interns
• How to use SMART goals for internships
• Best practices for managing interns
• Evaluations for success
• How to conduct an Outcome Assessment of an internship program

In baseball, there are two ways to get your top players: free agents or your “farm team”. Your “farm team” has practice, plays the game competitively and creates an environment for star players to be identified. For companies, in order to get our new hires we often times turn to recruiters (free agents). What if you had a “farm team” of talent that worked on real projects integrated into the culture, and allowed you to identify your next hires?

In this virtual session, participants will learn how to use current resources to create an effective internship program at their organization - an internship program that increases productivity, improves morale, raises their public profile, and gives access to top talent. We will put new value on Internship!
