The Inside Scoop on Successful Internship Programs

April 5, 2012

Internships can be wildly beneficial for both interns and employers because they give students experience working in a field that aligns with their studies or career goals, and they introduce employers to experienced candidates to consider for full-time hires in the future.

Jennifer King of Software Advice recently interviewed two industry experts–Andrew Maguire, CEO of InternMatch, and Larry Smith, founder and editor of SMITH Magazine–to get their tips for developing a successful internship program.

Students who complete internship may have an advantage when it does come time for the job search after graduation.  At the same token, employers recognize the advantage of an internship as shared by both Andrew and Larry.  Hopefully, these helpful tips encourage students to seek and experience an internship during this upcoming summer.  We’d love to hear your thoughts, comments or suggestions.  Like us and join the conversation.

Good luck and happy job hunting!
