Get Ready for Fall Interns at Your Company

Filed in Student Chapters, Workforce Development by on July 10, 2017 0 Comments

The dog days of summer may be upon us, but that shouldn’t stop you from thinking ahead to the benefits the new school year could bring to your company.

Student internships provide a valuable opportunity for home builders, remodelers and other industry pros to engage with three talent resources to meet their skilled labor needs: high school students in career and technical education programs; community college students; and university students.

NAHB recently released a guide, Student Internships: Resources for NAHB Members, to help members understand work-study student-learning opportunities and how to determine the type of student resource that best fits your company’s needs. The guide focuses on one type of work-study student learning experience: the paid internship.

The guide will help you identify ways to:

  • Establish contacts at local high schools or colleges
  • Engage with students through career fairs and other approved venues
  • Write a suitable job posting
  • Interview and hire candidates
  • Supervise, evaluate and communicate with your interns and their educational institutions

The internship guide can be found in the members-only Skilled Workforce Development Resources section on, under Internship Resources.
