Lessons Learned: Best Practices for Virtual Internships and Engaging Interns Remotely

Robert Shindell, Ph.D.
President & CEO, Intern Bridge, Inc.

The summer of 2020 posed new challenges for both employers who host interns and career services professionals who advise students making the transition to the world-of-work.  Due to COVID-19 everything that was certain was suddenly uncertain. Anything we thought we knew was unknowable.  The future was unfathomable.  For a while, chaos reigned supreme.  The world and the workplace turned upside-down.

Many companies and organizations that hosted interns cancelled their summer 2020 programs in light of the global pandemic, but some choose to take a different path.  Although they weren’t “exactly” like what internships traditionally looked like, the outcome was generally better than anyone anticipated.

Join us for this engaging presentation featuring Dr. Robert Shindell, President & CEO of Intern Bridge, the nation’s premier experiential education research and consulting firm to explore how to create amazing ROI for your virtual internship initiatives.  Best in class virtual internships are instrumental in amplifying employer brand, increasing retention rates, expanding high quality candidate pipelines, creating and building relationships with local universities and organizations, and having short-term projects completed by an educated workforce.

For the above to be true, organizations must host effective and meaningful virtual programs. How is this done? What are students looking for? What are the expectations of universities? What can organizations do to make their programs the best they can be?

Lessons Learned: Best Practices for Virtual Internships and Engaging Interns Remotely is designed to help you and your organization build a win-win virtual internship program. Based on the most in-depth research ever to be conducted into the successful management of internship programs, you can be assured that you will leave the webcast with the confidence to deliver virtual internships.  What you will learn:
