GC3 Internship Initiative Business Sector Feedback Forum

Description

Please join us

 

 

On November 8, 2017, many business and higher education professionals discussed the various issues involved in maximizing the number of internship opportunities to benefit both students and businesses in Greater Cincinnati.  The group identified three priorities which, if removed, will increase internship opportunities and help companies/industries develop and/or maintain a talent pipeline.  Those priorities are:

 

  • Value Added - promoting the value of internships as an investment in a businesses’ talent pipeline. 
  • Centralization - making the internship process seamless, especially for the business community.  Develop a “one-stop” for businesses to obtain information about internships, from how to develop and manage internships to finding the talent.
  • Pay and Financing for Internships– identify strategies for companies to develop paid internships and work them into their long term budgets.

 

Teams dedicated to each priority have been meeting since January.  What has been missing from the discussion is you……the business community.  Regardless of if you are a large, global company or a small non-profit, to address the hurdles listed above, we need your feedback.  If it doesn’t work for you, it doesn’t work at all.

Each team will provide an overview of their plan.  We want to know what you think and what adjustments are needed. Anyone interested in participating in this important initiative with the potential to greatly impact the region is welcome.  Please click the following link to RSVP and let us know we can count on you to be there.
