SHRM and Internships.com Extend Alliance
Internships.com will continue to be the Society for Human Resource Management’s official internship listings partner through 2015
Alexandria, VA (August 19, 2013) – Internships.com, the world’s largest internship marketplace, and the Society for Human Resource Management (SHRM), the world’s largest human resource management association, have extended their alliance to help connect students with SHRM employer members through internships. SHRM and Internships.com will continue to offer tools and resources for students to gain insight into the field of human resource management, helping to better prepare future HR professionals for the workforce. SHRM employer members will be able to attract students by posting their internships for free.
"Landing an internship is the best way for students to gain relevant HR experience before graduation," said Tara A. Fournier, Manager of Member Engagement for the Society for Human Resource Management. "Since 7 out of 10 internships result in a full time job offer, increasing the prevalence of HR internships will help usher in the next generation of HR professionals."
The renewed internship alliance expands on two years of collaboration between the organizations, which empowers both students and employers to learn about the benefits of utilizing internship programs while providing a platform to either recruit interns or discover open internship positions.
Internships.com will continue to provide a dedicated microsite that enables employer and student members to directly search for and connect with each other at no cost. As a result of the alliance, HR internships have grown into the top 10 most posted positions on Internships.com, with employers receiving an average of 7.5 applications per internship.
"We're thrilled to build on two years of success and continue working with SHRM," said Robin D. Richards, Chairman and CEO of Internships.com. "Internships are an ideal way for students to gain professional experience before embarking on a full time career, and we're proud to work with SHRM to better prepare students entering the human resource profession."
