Newton, Pa. — Jan. 30
Z University.org (ZU) has established an online internship knowledge center that features the contents of its newest version of Intern Toolkit and its program management methodology, “The Blueprint of Internship Success.”
The center enables users to download and adapt all of Intern Toolkit’s contents to make their own.
It also features ZU’s Blueprint for Internship Success, which features nine building blocks with 36 elements to give employers every advantage to achieve program excellence.
Toolkit purchasers also can use ZU’s expanding collection of internship-related resources, including supplementary white papers and case studies.
Intern Toolkit is the only complete resource for employers to turn internships into a strategic advantage that increases productivity, improves recruitmen, and enriches workforce development.
It contains more than 60 components that provide step-by-step guidance to apply a wealth of practical insights, adaptable templates to structure internship programs and best practices to effectively recruit, train and manage student interns.
Developed by Z University — a workforce readiness company dedicated to improving the quality of internship programs — the product also features a unique training curriculum to develop students’ core business skills.
“We’ve found that most employers simply lack the resources to create quality internship programs and the guidance to realize their full potential,” said Matthew Zinman, president and founder of Z University.org and The Internship Institute. “There’s a huge, untapped opportunity to convert intern talent into business gains and enable students to gain essential experience.”
Intern Toolkit is made up of seven modules:
- Program planning
- Screening and hiring
- Work management
- Performance measurement
- Skill-development training.
The contents are produced as a spiral-bound guidebook that’s highly durable for frequent use and well-organized for easy reference.
The product is designed for organizations of any size or industry, as well as for those with and without existing internship programs.
Key benefits include a proven internship methodology to structure and manage programs effectively, productivity systems and tools to fully use students’ capabilities, adaptable templates and student training curriculum, self-guides for interns to complete work with minimal supervision and access to ZU’s ever-expanding internship knowledge center.
