Managed Internships

Tapping into the turnkey Internship Management option offers organizations and their busy professionals a rewarding, efficient internship program experience for all participants: adult, employee, and intern. Operating an internship program in addition to a normal working office can seem burdensome or feel complicated, but that should not stop an organization from hosting valuable work-based experiences for young people.

Hire KC works alongside the organization’s designated authorizer, supervisor, or HR professional to simplify the structuring and scaffolding, recruiting to hiring process, scheduling and monitoring, and designing and orienting of engagement programming. Best of all, with a managed internship, organizations can rely on Hire KC to handle the day-to-day details while the work-based experiences become more easily lived and modeled by all involved.

Hire KC respectfully works in tandem with hosting teams to fit the internship experience into its partners’ operative systems and procedures, allowing colleagues and interns alike to share the benefits of the program. Offices and cultures are vivified by new faces and perspectives, if not reminded of their own purposes. Leadership opportunities emerge for colleagues to mentor and advise hosted interns through the procedures and projects taking place daily in the workplace. Vitalized by the presence of interns, colleagues and teams take it upon themselves to introduce and share opportunities and resources to the interns reminiscent of themselves in pursuit of a career in the particular field or industry. Finally, integrating a culminating project into the daily set of tasks and duties of the intern, alleviates offices and teams supervisory needs, enhances engagement while tied to high expectations in a manner that grants appropriate urgency to work completed. The end products are an office renewed, a young person’s trajectory and professionalism matured, and a new outlook on the nature of work-based experience at large.

Hire KC or Hire KC Youth?
