Building a Win-Win Internship Program: Startups, Students & Lessons Learned
April 14 @ 11:30 am - 1:00 pmFree
Planning to hire interns? Learn from our success (and mistakes made along the way).
Over the past nine months, the NextCorps Embark program has taken a cohort of idea-stage software startup founders on a journey from problem discovery to prototype development. Our team of 30 student interns was there for every step, providing critical support while gaining invaluable work experience.
During this session, we’ll share everything we learned about how to create an engaging, effective, unconventional internship program — from crafting the job description and interview questions, to how we went about assigning projects and managing feedback.
Embark Program Coordinator, Melanie DellaPietra, will talk through mistakes made, the feedback received, and how we adjusted throughout the program, to help you make the most of your internship program.
Attendees will learn how to:
- Connect interns with projects and tasks where they will thrive
- Provide interns with timely and meaningful feedback
- Create a win-win experience for the student and the employer
- Connect with grants to help cover the cost of employing interns
This is a virtual workshop. Zoom details will be shared via email with all registrants prior to the event.
