Vendor Management Program
There are valuable aspects of participating in an internship program:
ÃƒËœ From a Candidates perspective it will expose you to your chosen industry. A formalized internship program will give you hands-on experience in your preferred field so that you can truly determine if it is the right industry for you. You may find that you thrive on the day-to-day responsibilities and pressures of the job you have chosen, or it may turn out that it might not be the perfect fit you may have thought it would be. The beauty of an internship is that it helps you determine what you are looking for in a career before graduation so you can make adjustments to your curriculum if needed. Another advantage of interning in your chosen field is that it helps you apply the skill set that you are learning in college and allows you to identify opportunities for improvement. Recognizing where improvement is needed is essential so that you have the proper skill sets to be competitive in the marketplace by the time you graduate. Many students find that once they have participated in an internship program, their classes begin to become more "focused" because they better understand way that what they are learning is applied in the workplace.
ÃƒËœ A formulized internship program is an advantage for the employer as well. Eighty-five percent of the employers responding to the National Association of Colleges and Employers' 2002 Job Outlook Survey indicated that they have some kind of internship or co-op program - and most use their program as a recruiting tool. These programs give the employer the opportunity to identify potential full-time employees for upcoming positions. It also benefits the employer because this potential employee projects, so the training program's learning curve is shortened.
