Internship Time Frames & Academic Credit

The Menlo Internship Program is an effective program to prepare students for the real world and help businesses find talent. Finding talent is a major challenge; it requires a ton of advertising, recruiting, resume screening, interviewing and reference calling. By working closely with the business to understand the skills required for each position and pairing students with potential internship opportunities, the Menlo Internship Program significantly reduces the time it takes to source quality candidates. — Francis Adanza, Director of Marketing, Zephyr
