Intern programs can provide your company with an early opportunity to gauge the talents of a new generation of workers and, in many cases, sell your company as a quality place for students to begin their careers after they graduate.
They also provide unparalleled experiential learning opportunities for students as pre-professionals seeking to boost their knowledge and competencies.
