Bright and enthusiastic people with new ideas are willing to trade time for work experience in every field. Volunteers and interns can be a fantastic source of creative energy and labor. But organizing and managing them can become a full-time job. Want to take advantage of additional help easily and efficiently? Between Jennifer and Betsy every year they hire over 150 individuals into a training program and understand both the corporate culture and entrepreneurial workplace. Learn: 1. What type of work and organization does best with interns. 2. What elements are needed in an efficient and productive recruitment program 3. What supervision and management strategy work best with this workforce. You will leave the session with a plan in hand for how to start or revamp your internship program so you can maximize the value of this low-cost resource and get more accomplished in less time.
