FREE WORKSHOP: HOW TO MAKE THE MOST OF YOUR INTERNSHIP

January 15: 10 am- 11am, Pacific Ballroom

Presenters:
Daphne Felicitas, Manager, Global Training & Leadership Development
Linda Ly, Talent Development Coordinator (previous intern)

This workshop is available for all organizations registering for the Public & Community Service Fair. Attend this session and find out what community partners can do to make their opportunities both meaningful to interns / volunteers and impactful to the organization. Learn about Oakley’s best practices and see it from both sides – listen to the perspective of a community partner and also hear about the value created from a former intern. Then walk away with specific ideas and practices that you can use to maximize your opportunities and engage your interns / volunteers.
