School News

Walsh University and the Northeast Ohio Council on Higher Education (NOCHE) will welcome Dr. Robert Shindell from Intern Bridge, the nation’s leading research & consulting firm to share a newfound approach to internship design based on in-depth research and proven strategies. The Akron/Canton Area Total Internship Management Workshop will be held on Friday, July 14, at Walsh University, from 8:30 a.m. to 3:30 p.m. Registration is required.

In this full-day, highly interactive and participatory workshop, participants will learn how to develop a world-class internship and entry talent acquisition program, as well as:

  • Effectively implement an impactful internship program
  • Identify future hires through a no-strings-attached 12-week interview
  • Create and maintain a pipeline of highly qualified and educated full-time job candidates
  • Increase their organization's brand awareness on university and college campuses
  • Build long-lasting relationships with local colleges and universities

"Earlier this spring, we attended this event in Cleveland, and immediately saw the value in the way that Intern Bridge simplified the message on what makes for a successful intern site," said Andrew Weyand, Walsh’s Director of Career Services. "This workshop is ideal for those managing interns as well as anyone who would like to design a new internship program for their company. A better managed and planned internship program benefits everyone, the colleges, the students and the employers. For students, an internship provides real-world experience that will make them more marketable to employers. For businesses, if you can establish a strong internship program then you’re guaranteed a talent pipeline right into your entry level workforce."
