Event Details

“Education is not preparation for life; education is life itself.” - John DeweyiStock 000014377944Medium

With the rising costs of higher education in the United States, more and more the “value” of a college degree comes into question.  For many years colleges and universities have promoted the value of internships to students.  Some students jump at the chance to partake in this type of experience.  Others, well… not so much.  Why? 

A century ago, John Dewey made a compelling case for the integration of academic and experiential learning in the educational curriculum. Presenting students with experiential learning opportunities would mean that “the whole pupil is engaged, the artificial gap between life in school and out is reduced,” and students draw motivation from exposure “to a large variety of materials and processes distinctly educative in effect,” within the context of the larger society.

As career center professionals we know the value of internships and how they can positively impact the lives of students as they transition from college to the world of work.  However, frustration sets in when we see students NOT taking advantage of these life changing experiences.

In this never-before-released data from Intern Bridge’s National Internship & Co-op Study, we will explore the reasons why students choose not to participate in internships and how YOU can influence them to make different decisions.  We will also cover –

  • Who students are going to for advice and guidance;
  • Proven tactics you can implement today to engage students at all levels;
  • The most effective methods you can use to reach students where they are;
  • Best practices of working with periphery influencers

Don’t miss your chance to benefit about never-before analyzed data and learn how to enage students to participate in internships that will get industry leading results..

All registrants will also receive a digital copy of the Intern Bridge Internship Salary Report - over 100 pages of internship compensation data, an $80 value!
