Host/Company: Automation Alley

  = Required Information

Event Description

Are you frustrated in your search for an employee that is a good fit? Did you realize that internship and apprenticeship programs can cultivate future talent? Companies that have structured internship and apprenticeship programs are able to mold their talent to manufacture a suitable workforce. Growing and grooming a workforce from the inside out can help your company increase its competitiveness.

Automation Alley’s committees on Education and Workforce, Manufacturing and Technology are teaming up to present “Interns and Apprentices: Models to Design and Construct Future Talent.” This cooperative committee venture will offer a way to get started in the process of developing successful programs.

  • Amanda Dumond-Avila, Director, Talent Initiatives and Business Enhancement, Prima Civitas Foundation
  • Sarah Harfst, Consultant at Orbitak International LLC
Dumond-Avila and Harfst will address ways to assist employers in developing and implementing an internship and apprenticeship program and how doing so can greatly impact their bottom line. They will also discuss how having an intern or apprentice is an opportunity to “try out” a future employee.
