This month, the University of Wisconsin System and the Wisconsin Economic Development Corporation (WEDC) have introduced the Talent Generator to make it easier for businesses to launch their own internship programs.
The new online tool offers tips and best practices for creating and sustaining a successful student talent development program.
Why is this important? WEDC’s new leader, Missy Hughes, sums it up in this excerpt from the news release:
“Small and medium-sized firms, typically the fastest growing segment of our state economy, often run very lean and may not have the capacity to launch these types of learning experiences. This innovative resource helps reduce some of the barriers to tapping the student talent pipeline in Wisconsin.”
