Interested in taking on new graduates, but worried about making the wrong decision on full-time hires?

Come learn from Internship professionals how Internships are not only an important hands-on experience for undergrad and graduate students before they officially enter the workforce, but also a valuable tool for employers in recruiting high potential performers, if properly planned and implemented. Internships allow employers to “test drive” the Interns and greatly mitigate the risk of hiring untested new graduates.
