A new regional program aimed at closing the gap between companies in need of fresh talent and interns looking to gain career experience was launched last week by Greater Louisville Inc. and the HIRE Education Forum. Intern To Earn aims to develop the talent pool necessary to meet future regional workforce needs, and connect the next generation of talent to the 13-county, bi-state Greater Louisville region. 

The Intern To Earn program (www.InternToEarn.com) offers a range of services for businesses and students, including internship development workshops, support for businesses with new and existing internship programs, a comprehensive database of internship openings, intern connection events and professional networking opportunities and online tools and resources for businesses and students.

Companies interested in developing internship programs, strengthening existing programs, and showcasing internship positions to the nearly 50,000 college students living in the region can engage by:

• Attending free regional workshops on developing and executing an internship program.

• Visiting www.InternToEarn.com to download free employer resources, including an internship program toolkit.

• Posting spring, summer and fall internships at no cost at www.InternToEarn.com.
