As the competition for talent has intensifies, internship programs have become an increasingly important component of almost every organizations’ talent acquisition and development strategy.
But how much companies benefit from internship programs varies widely from organization to organization. Many variables can affect the value of the work your interns do and the quality of their experience with your organization. And all of these factors will affect your employer brand and influence your conversion rates into new hires.
Join C.J. Harris in this interactive workshop as she takes you through some best practices for getting the most out of your internship programs. These will include key strategies for running an effective orientation, enhancing the intern experience (including performance evaluations, facilitating networking, intern engagement, etc.), and managing offers & improving acceptance rates.

After experiencing branding challenges, National Instruments decided to focus on the most important aspect of recruiting: the front-line team members who represent the brand on campus. Any organization with a lean recruiting team has to leverage the time and strengths of managers across the lines of business to get involved on campus. As research shows, students want to talk to the “real people” they’ll be working with; but this puts your brand in the hands of people who aren’t fully immersed in campus recruiting.
Come learn how National Instruments developed and implemented a universal training program to ensure their representatives on campus were the best possible brand ambassadors to help attract the right talent right now. Hear what worked and what had to be improved; join the discussion; and take some new ideas back to your organization.

Quantitative and qualitative data will be presented to document what students value [and don’t] – and WHY – during their job search experience.
