Who typically attends this conference?
We have a combination of two- and four-year collegiate internship and work experience coordinators, instructors and support staff PLUS employers who have or want to develop an internship/work experience program serving college students PLUS graduate students who are interested in working in career, internship or student services at the collegiate level AND anyone else who believes in the importance of work-based learning in career exploration and development.
Why do you call it both "internship" AND "work experience"? What's the difference?
A portion of our members are from CA community colleges where this type of activity (learning at a workplace rather than a classroom) is called by state regulation "cooperative work experience" while other schools and companies may call the same thing an "internship" (or co-op, externship, service learning). We consider it all along a spectrum of applied learning outside of the classroom in support of personal and career development and our organization and activities address all these types and needs.
