Breakfast with HR-NY: The New Internship Paradigm 
SEPARATE REGISTRATION (Click on "online registration" at the bottom of )

Do you have an internship program or thinking about creating one? What you don’t know can hurt you.

The legal environment for internships has become more complex for both employers and university career services organizations. Learn from an expert panel what you need to know to ensure that your program is in compliance with federal, state and local guidelines.

Experiential learning has become an integral part of the curriculum of many academic institutions. Students expect to experience quality internships before they graduate, and many employers utilize internships to develop the talent they need for their entry level positions. So how do you know if you're doing it correctly?

Employers are challenged to structure internships that meet academic standards and are within the parameters defined by law.

Career Centers are challenged to ensure that employers provide a productive learning experience for their students. They need to be able to engage in a constructive dialog with employers around these issues.

Join us for a panel discussion about the new internship paradigm. This panel will feature speakers from the following organizations, who will share their knowledge and expertise about structuring an effective internship program including:

James Feeley, Human Resources Specialist with the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency-Region 2
Diana Gruverman is the Senior Director of Wasserman Center
Douglas Klein is an Associate in the New York City office of Jackson Lewis P.C.
Daniel Simpson is the Sr. Manager of Diversity and Campus programs for The New York Times media group

10:30 a.m.- 3 p.m.
Presentation Skills Training
presented by Specialty Training Services, Inc.

Attendees at this meeting can expect to pick up tips and techniques to strengthen their presentations and feel more comfortable presenting. Attendees will apply session ideas to their own presentation situations. We encourage attendees to bring questions about their actual presentations in development.

Planned Session Topics
• Common presentation blunders
• Two crucial presenter skill sets: 1) content selection and organization, and 2) physical delivery
• Presentation purpose and how to nail it - the presentation’s focus
• Audience analysis to guide presentation content
• Organized content that persuades
• Visual aids that work (PowerPoint is not the presentation)
