Every summer, Learning Tree International sponsors a 10-week internship program structured to build a pipeline for future hires while developing the management skills of existing staff. Projects and scope of work selected for each intern allow for Learning Tree to advance short-term goals while providing an assignment that helps the intern learn new skills, grow professionally and gain insight for future career decisions. With a focus on providing a rewarding and impactful experience for interns, direct access to senior leadership in executive roundtable events is provided. Sessions cover key topics such as CEO Insights, Communication Skills, Understanding Social Media, Career and Job Search Skills, and a meeting with the Chairman of the Board.
When asked to offer advice to a company just starting an internship program, Learning Tree suggested ensuring the scope of work for each internship is fully developed before recruiting for the internship program because it’s essential to ensure the skill set you are recruiting matches the scope of work. Another piece of advice is to ensure there is plenty of work identified for the interns. Interns tend to complete work much faster than their sponsor or manager would expect.
Learning Tree is the premier global developer of skills and talent, increasing organizational performance and impact.
