Room: Cayuga
Time: 10:45 - 11:30

Learn how CoveyCS uses its internship program to acquire and train staff with high retention rates. Our approach is geared towards junior-level technical employees leaving or finishing up college and seeking to enter the workforce. We will go over some highlights of our program including identifying talent through college partnerships and professor recommendations, evaluating personal strengths (with emphasis given to the ability to learn), technical skills training, easing the shock of moving from college life to professional life, determining fit into our culture, and some of the pitfalls we ran into as we continually improve our program.

It’s a little different perspective than I’ve gotten from other tradeshows, other organizations, other groups. That’s the part that has made it more interesting.
