Internship Basics for Businesses
Friday, June 28, 2013 from 7:30 AM to 9:00 AM (EDT)
The cure to Dayton’s “brain drain” and the success of your business are connected by a very important link: internships. DaytonINTERNS’ workshop will walk you through the process that will help retain this vital demographic and infuse your business with this energetic, skilled work force.
Sustainable internship programs are an important part of retaining young, educated workers in Dayton. Did you know, according to a recent survey, 68 percent of college students stayed in the region after graduation if they had an internship? Conversely, 32 percent of college students that did not have an internship left the area after graduating.
Your business stands to gain tremendous potential by harnessing the power of internships:
“Test drive” new employees: Supplement the traditional hiring process with an internship program. Position your business to snatch up talented employees, or bring in a new intern to be sure the employee is a good fit for your business.
Finish long-term projects: Do you have a project that’s almost complete or has stagnated because your employees are stretched too thin? Manage your work force’s time more effectively by using interns.
- Ensure completion of low-priority tasks: Keep your high-level employees focused on high-level tasks by using interns to take on those low-level responsibilities. You’ll free up time for your higher-paid positions while offering meaningful experience for interns.
