What a Competency-Based Approach to Hiring Could Mean for Internship Programs

Written by Shawn Turner

Employers are becoming increasingly focused on finding new ways for potential new hires to demonstrate their skills and talents in new, out-of-the-box ways. And this emerging competency-based approach to evaluating talent can also be applied to internship programs.

During the upcoming Third Annual Cleveland Internship Summit, Martin Scaglione, the president and CEO of Hope Street Group, a national organization focused in part on bringing new ideas to the workforce arena, will talk about what this shift in thinking might mean for your internship program.

The session will feature an informal discussion between Scaglione and Jason Drake of Dan T. Moore Companies about a number of topics, including:

  • how competency-based hiring can be folded into existing internship programs;
  • how it can serve as the base of new internship programs companies are building;
  • how this approach can lead to long-term employment for young professionals after their internship has ended;

In addition to the above, Scaglione will also talk about Hope Street’s “Sync Our Signals” workforce campaign and how that campaign can strengthen America’s workforce through competency-based sourcing, selection and hiring practices.
