Everyone is talking about the initiative to attract and retain the next generation. But what if “attracting” and “retaining” isn’t enough? What if we have to add another element into that mix — an “educating” element?
I am not talking about college or university education; I am referring to the education you receive by contributing in the workplace, working on a variety of business-related projects, and building a strong portfolio and résumé. A good, quality internship can accomplish the above, all before the intern graduates from college.
