Business Retention, Expansion & Workforce Update – September 2017
Business Retention | Expansion | Workforce
The team made 11 visits in August and seven of those companies are growing.
Two are new companies to the area. We referred two companies to internship programs and made eight connections between business and education.
EDAWN continues to remind companies about the benefits of hiring interns at the K-12 level, Community College and the University levels.
Internships matter for students because they provide opportunities to combine academic achievement with practical work experience. Some things are best taught through experience. For an employer, here are 5 reasons you may not have considered via Forbes YEC Women article, for hiring interns: “1) Interns bring a new perspective on organizational issues 2) Ease of use with technology 3) Trial period that could lead to something more 4) Help with projects or tasks you are struggling to complete 5) Gain brand advocates.”
