[LIVE] The New Reality - Digital Internships
The microelectronics industry has long relied on internships to help build its workforce. Most interns who successfully complete their short stint at a company are offered a full-time job. Even before COVID-19, more companies have been turning to digital internships to engage students from across the country. Management and internship coordinators had to quickly come up with new ways to not only give interns meaningful work but replicate day-to-day personal and social interaction, considered valuable parts of internships. Deemed an ‘essential industry’, microelectronics continued it crucial work, and interns remain important to meeting future workforce needs.
