Hire a Spring Intern
The Campus Greensboro Spring Forward Program specifically targets students in their last semester of college – seniors and graduate level. The goal of Spring Forward is to connect students to paid spring internships and provide networking and leadership development opportunities to help them build their connections and transition from college to the workplace, ultimately retaining them in Greensboro.
There is not a formal application process with this program – only a “resume drop”.
How to recruit a spring intern through Spring Forward:
- Fill out this interest form where you will select the departments or areas in which you are recruiting interns (i.e., marketing, finance, healthcare, etc.).
- Campus Greensboro will work with the seven local colleges/universities to recruit students to submit their resumes for consideration of a spring internship.
- Students will submit resumes in their areas of interest by November 13, 2019 and you will receive all resumes submitted for the categories you select by November 15, 2019.
- Students will receive the list of employers who received their resumes so that they can prepare in case you select them for an interview.
- You review resumes, interview, and extend offers. Please report your confirmed hires to Campus Greensboro by January 17, 2020.
Students who accept an internship through Spring Forward will become a “YP” (young professional) in the program. They will have monthly required events, including a full-day leadership conference on March 19, 2020.
