WSU Warriors Learn How to Intern with the Government April 10th, from 1 – 3:00 in Room 110 Purdy Kresge

Make A Difference – Intern with the Government

government interns

Thursday, April 10, 2014 (1:00pm–3:00pm)

Wayne State University

Purdy/Kresge Library (Room 110: Purdy/Kresge Auditorium)

According to the Government Accountability Office, by 2016, more than a third of the Federal Government workforce will be eligible to retire. Today, in Michigan, nearly 15% of state government employees are eligible to retire. Succession planning is critical! Last year, officials from the Federal and State Government offices cohesively conducted pilot workshops across Michigan called Make a Difference—Intern with the Government.   Attendees included all majors, international students, first year students through seniors, graduates, and veterans. Ninety-seven per cent of the students rated the presentation exceptional; 93% learned valuable employment tips and would now consider working for the government.

Why is the government focused on internships and student programs? According to the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), research suggested that, last year alone, 58.6% of interns were converted to full-time employees. In addition, interns are more likely to be retained for long-term employment and advance faster. To help build the next generation of competitive government leaders and reach a larger audience, state and federal government representatives have partnered this year with the Michigan Career Educator and Employer Alliance (MCEEA): and select schools throughout Michigan to again present the sessions. These workshops are free and open to all college students in the region.
