Sessions are frequently held during Kenyon’s “Common Hour” on Tuesdays and Thursdays between 11:00 a.m.-12:00 p.m., as well as in the evenings Monday-Thursday. Tables are often held during peak student traffic hours in the College’s dining hall, Peirce Hall.
Recent studies have shown that more than 60% of employers report intern-to-permanent hiring practices and that internship experience is the most important résumé credential for landing a job after graduation. It’s no wonder employers and students are both more focused than ever on this important learning-by-doing model. However, not all internships are created equal, and in an increasingly competitive landscape for top talent, employers that establish powerful internship experiences are likely to have a better chance of converting interns to full-time employees. Consider these suggestions when developing a transformative internship at your organization.
