Abstract (300 words maximum)

How to establish growth within the internship program? The purpose of this paper is to answer this question. In addition, helping build an efficient internship program transitioning interns into employees. Agencies using internship programs as a recruiting system are not uncommon. Studies have shown what makes an efficient program but lack in analyzing how agencies can advertise themselves, organize, and connect interns' interests. The work uses qualitative and quantitative data to help answer the question through agencies' surveys, documents, and interviews. Interns know what they want and do not want through the experience of the program. The agency needs to establish a connection to understand the interns' interests to help them grow to be long-term employees.

Keywords: Internship, internship programs, agency, advertisement, connection, transitioning, employees, growth, interns' interest
