It takes many ‘boots on the ground’ to plant internships successfully and to nurture them to thrive. The Internship Institute TrainingCorps program employs U.S. military veterans as field experts to provide fee-based Internship Seeding services to businesses and non-profits. Services include recruitment of interns, assistance with training and project supervision and certification programs.

As a result of TrainingCorps activities, students gain assistance in finding the right internships for their needs. Once placed, they receive skills training to improve job performance and gain the best experience possible to maximize their employability.
