Orlando, FL (PressExposure) May 21, 2009 -- The summer college internship program at Three Stars Inc. kicked off Wednesday, May 20, 2009 as several students reported for orientation and training. The program has been specifically designed to complement its participantsâ education with the workplace knowledge and skills necessary to land a quality job after graduation.
âEveryone was on time and eager to start, which is a great sign for whatâs to come from these folks,â program director Keith Kress said. âWeâre expecting great things from this bunch of kids.â
Even before the economy contracted - making it more difficult for college grads to secure employment in their field - companies have been asking more and more of their applicants; and several years of internship experience give grads that extra edge to land the job over the graduates without any internships.
âOne of the things we look for when weâre hiring kids right out of college is work experience above and beyond class work,â Mr. Kress said. âJust showing up to class and taking tests doesnât show the initiative that weâre looking for. We want people who spent their free time putting in the extra effort working an internship. It just made sense that if we expect that, we should offer a program that would give kids those types of opportunities.â
Three Stars Inc. offers students experience in all aspects of a marketing and advertising company from administrative duties to creative input into programs and campaigns. The entire process of developing a successful marketing strategy as well as the nuts and bolts of operating the company is available to the interns to learn how all of the knowledge theyâve acquired in school relates to the real business world.
âWhen these kids leave our program, theyâll be ready to work in any capacity at any marketing company in the country. And if they decide to apply here for a permanent position, theyâll certainly be on top of the short list,â Mr. Kress concluded.
