The internship program InteRDom, an initiative of Global Foundation for Democracy and Development (GFDD) and Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE), will celebrate fourth edition of its annual conference next Monday, April 27 at 7:00 pm at FUNGLODE Headquarters in Santo Domingo. The event will unite national and international institutions headquartered in the Dominican Republic and the United States.

The primary objective of the InteRDom Conference is to involve corporations and organizations in the process of helping young people to transition into the workforce, and present internships as beneficial opportunities for institutions.

In addition to the participation of national experts, the 2009 edition of the conference will feature the participation of international expert Gizem Eren-Baig, Voice Secondment Program Coordinator for The World Bank in the United States. Ms. Eren-Baig will speak about the role that internship programs play in the economic development of nations.

During the event, participating corporations and organizations will have the opportunity to become affiliated with the InteRDom Program (Internships in the Dominican Republic) and to participate in the “Certification Seminar for Internship Coordinators,” which will also take place at FUNGLODE Headquarters. Through the certification program, affiliated institutions will learn how to implement and improve their own internship programs.

The InteRDom Conference is an annual event that promotes debate on global trends related to management, training and professional development in the area of human resources. The Conference forms part of a complete program of activities that InteRDom implements throughout the year as part of its mission to partner with Dominican corporations and their human resource departments to develop internship programs that meet international standards of excellence.

InteRDom, the premier internship and academic study program in the Dominican Republic, offers students the opportunity to gain professional experience by interning with Dominican organizations and businesses related to their field of study, while taking courses and seminars at local universities. The program significantly contributes to the development of the nation’s employment sector and the advancement of academic research.
