Each quarter, the Engage Mentoring Executive Talent Roundtables meet and have a focused discussion on a topic related to attracting, retaining, and developing talent.

At our upcoming Engage Mentoring Executive Talent Roundtable meeting, the focus topic will be building effective internship programs and their impact on talent attraction and retention. To prepare for the discussion, I had the pleasure of sitting down with Mike Slocum, Executive Director for Indiana InternNet.

Some of the topics we discussed included the importance of planning for internships, assigning the right leader to manage the program, and the importance of mentorship for the intern.
