For over a decade Intern Bridge has been the nations premier experiential learning research and consulting firm. We have helped thousands of employers develop, enhance, grow, sustain and evaluate effective internship and other work-based learning programs.
The value of internships, both to organizations and students is well-known. For organizations, a strong intern program can maintain a pipeline of highly qualified candidates for full-time roles. Internships and other forms of experiential education help students make a seamless transition to the world of work and are a perfect vehicle to increase retention rates, complete short-term projects, and identify future hires.
Though our award-winning Total Internship Management methodology, based on the most in-depth research ever to be conducted into the successful management of internship programs, employers from all industries and all sizes have found value in developing the next generation of their workforce.
Five (5) reasons why you should host a virtual event for your employers delivered by Intern Bridge:
- HRCI & SHRM-PDC Accredited – Getting CEU’s is critical for HR professionals. All of our programming has been accredited by both HRCI and SHRM.
- It’s “low stress” on you and your team – there is very little that you are responsible for other than sending invites to your employer partners. We take care of everything else!
- The Content of the Workshop – Our methodology focuses on meeting the employer where they are and helping them to develop a framework for success by focusing on the “variables” that lead to an effective outcome. We have found that by focusing on the “variables” we can help organizations of all shapes and sizes (and in all industries) create more systemic programs.
- Community Building – At each of the workshops we present, we engage the local SHRM Chapters, the local Chamber of Commerce regional Economic Development initiatives and other business related organizations. We find that usually 30 to 40% of the attendees are not currently actively recruiting at the school that hosts the workshop.
- The Experience – the structure of the virtual programs are very engaging. We do not just tell them about how to develop, grow sustain or enhance their internships – they actually spend time working to build a plan that they can put into place.
- Learn a data-driven, best in class framework for delivering internship experience;
- Identify future hires through effective internship programming;
- Equip managers with the right tools to maximize the ROI of your internship initiatives;
- Engage your entire organization by focusing on meaningful outcomes;
- Increase your organizational brand awareness on college campuses;
- And much, much more!
All of our programming has been accredited by both HRCI and SHRM-PDC. By attending, registrants will receive continuing education credits towards PHR and S-PHR Certifications!

“The Total Internship Management Course was immensely helpful in empowering us to launch our internship program with confidence. We've had extremely positive responses from both the mentors and the interns. We're on our 3rd semester of interns and all have given us rave reviews, recommended us to friends and contributed in a meaningful way to our organization. If your internship program could use some help or if you're looking to launch one from the ground up - I highly recommend attending a Total Internship Management workshop in your area!”

“The Total Internship Management workshop was an amazing course for Intern Managers who need assistance with developing, solidifying, or even fine-tuning their internship programs. I began the course with little to no knowledge of how to manage my interns, and within a week, I have created a full 15-week internship program with the knowledge, tools, and resources from this course! Dr. Robert is an amazing facilitator. I would recommend this course to EVERYONE!”
Development Coordinator | Alzheimer's Association of Orange County
“Prior to participating in the Total Internship Management Workshop, we welcomed interns to join our team, however, did not have a structured program. We quickly realized we needed to create a true “learning environment” for our interns to develop and grow and while giving them an excellent experience. We continue to have success with our program, adopting new ideas and strategies, a result of the foundation we built with through the Total Internship Management Program!”

“I’ve personally recruited, trained, and developed hundreds of successful college interns throughout the course of my career and I honestly didn’t think I’d get much out of this workshop – boy was I wrong! Whether your goal in hiring interns is to provide a path for them to potentially join your firm full-time or you just want to ensure you’re following the letter of the law, I would highly recommend attending The Total Internship Management Workshop as soon as possible.”

It was helpful to meet individuals form other organizations in the area. Dr. Shindell is an exceptional speaker and communicator with a wealth of knowledge to share on this topic!”
“The Total Management Workshop was time well spent. The format with the employers and academic contacts all in one room is fantastic. The table discussions and the group facilitation with an expert on the topic is terrific. In a sense, it was like a focus group with a captive audience and I came away with some key information on topics that were important to me and our organization.”
