Internships are Your Competitive Advantage!

Everyone knows the value of internships, but does your organization run a strong intern program that maintains a pipeline of highly qualified candidates for full-time roles?  Internships and other forms of experiential education help students make a seamless transition to the world of work and are a perfect vehicle to increase retention rates, complete short-term projects, and identify future hires.

On July 25th , Greenville SHRM, the Greenville Chamber of Commerce and Presbyterian College will welcome Dr. Robert Shindell from Intern Bridge, the nation’s leading research & consulting firms to share a newfound approach to internships based on in-depth research and proven strategies.
