Projects, People and Productivity
Most intern placement companies rely on the host company to work out the intern program and manage the interns.
While the host company has the right projects for interns and may select the right ones suited for the project, depending on the complexity of the project, many struggle to get measurable outcomes due to lack of time to assist and manage the interns and the interns may have skill gaps in either the area of expertise of how to use the technology to be able to complete tasks.
With these two areas, host staff are unable to find the time to train interns and interns spend most of their time learning on the job rather than on the project.
Why use a Design Consulting Intern Program
Our intern programs are predominantly project driven where our clients will have projects such as conceptual, R&D, documentation or data management that require engineering, design, analysis, programming and/or management tools to complete the project.
From experience, however, we find most interns require training, ongoing project management and training to be able to work on such projects.
In a busy and competitive world, most intern placements programs don’t provide the interns the necessary training, ongoing mentoring and project management during their placement.

Professional Consulting and Engineering
We work with our clients and identify the key objectives of the project, milestones, resources and skills required. If there are any gaps with an interns experience in the area of expertise or software technology, we provide ongoing training and mentoring to assist the intern and the host company receives a measurable outcome from the program and assistance in managing their projects.
For longer term internship programs with rolling 12 week interns being placed, we develop a induction intern program specifically for the host company that can form the basis for not only future interns but new and existing staff that require training.
It’s in this methodology and approach where the host company receive a positive, measurable outcome.
