With the objective of strengthening academic quality and filling the gap in youth to workforce programming in the Dominican Republic, InteRDom joins forces with the Global Institute for Studies in Social Sciences (IGlobal), to offer the 8th edition of the Internship Certification Program through its Summer School program.
The seminar will take place on Wednesday, July 30th, Thursday, July 31st and Friday, August 1st, 2014, at Fundación Global Democracia y Desarrollo (FUNGLODE/GFDD) from 9:00 a.m. to 1:00 p.m. It is tailored to human resources representatives, project managers, executives and professionals in all areas who are interested in creating or optimizing their internship programs.
The main purpose of the Internship Certification Seminar is for participants to learn to build effective internship programs, or to improve and those that already exist, with the ultimate goal of strengthening the role of the participating human resources representatives and executives in achieving the strategic objectives of the organization through the design and preparation of work plans that include the collaboration of local and international interns in the short and long terms.
In addition to learning tools to enhance or create internship programs within their organizations, participants will attend the Live Internships section, in which they will have the opportunity to talk with local and international interns about their experiences; dialogue with representatives from a local university, who will offer details on how to access its students and graduates through its department of career services; and, furthermore, they will talk with an organization that has already been certified, and which will share its experiences and the best practices it has implemented in the management of its internship programs.
To date, some 60 organizations from different sectors have certified their programs with InteRDom. Check the program agenda at http://www.iglobal.edu.do/images/programas/curso-certificacion-pasantias.pdf.
