Training session to help employers benefit from student internships
The OU INCubator, Oakland University Career Services and the Prima Civitas Foundation are inviting area employers to learn more about creating and implementing a student internship program that both advances business goals and provides a valuable educational experience to business leaders of tomorrow.
As part of the Michigan Internship Initiative, the Employer Internship Training Session set for 9-10:30 a.m. on Tuesday, Nov. 8, will help participants learn to set program goals and policies, write internship plans, recruit and manage qualified interns, and conduct exit interviews and follow-up communication. Participants also will receive an internship toolkit.
"Assisting employers with building an internship program is an essential step in creating opportunities for both talent and businesses in our state," said Amanda Avila, talent development manager for the Prima Civitas Foundation.
"Employer Internship Training Sessions provide the perfect forum to connect businesses with resources, including educational partners, to assist with internship program development."
Brief student and employer presentations will be part of the session, and both a tour of the OU INC facility and a networking opportunity will take place afterward.
There is no charge to attend the training event, and a light breakfast will be provided. For online registration, visit oakland.edu/careerservices and click on "Employer Internship Training Session Registration" under the "Employers" header. A map to the event is provided upon completion of the registration form. For more information, call (248) 370-3250 or e-mail Mike Stromayer at email@example.com.
