For Employers

Post your job/internship opportunities online with CareerKnight!

Company growth begins with human resources. The School of Environmental and Biological Sciences SPIN office can be viewed by employers as "a consulting service" for their personnel needs. Besides reducing recruitment and training costs, SPIN gives employers the opportunity to evaluate potential employees without long-term commitment. For short- to intermediate-range needs, such as special projects, research studies, or seasonal developments, the SPIN Program provides motivated students who can help meet employer objectives.

In the long term, it has been nationally verified that a majority of internship students are retained as committed employees by the companies where they had worked during college. In addition, the turnover of employees who had previously been internship students remains significantly less than seen with those employees who did not have such "reality-testing" experiences. In pursuit of their career goals, internship students seek to make the most of their opportunities as employees. Internship students can and do increase productivity for many business/agencies.
