As a general rule, internships aren’t my strongest area. I’m a HR person at a software firm, before that a field HR generalist (manager, director and VP level) with a couple of Fortune 500 entities. Lots to do in all the jobs and even though internships have value, they never got the priority I would have liked to place on them.
I see a Director of Talent Management/Acquisition position in my future, so I guess I better get tuned in to the internship thing. First stop? Internship Program best practices at Kramerica Industries. Take a look:
Kris Dunn is a Partner and CHRO at Kinetix, a national RPO firm for growth companies headquartered in Atlanta. He’s also the founder Fistful of Talent (founded in 2008) and The HR Capitalist (2007) – and has written over 70 feature columns at Workforce Management magazine. Prior to his investment at Kinetix, Kris served in HR leadership roles at DAXKO, Charter and Cingular. In his spare time, KD hits the road as a speaker and gives the world what it needs – pop culture references linked to Human Capital street smarts.
