The Looming Talent Crisis

iStock_000004817156SmallThe bureau of Labor Statistics predicts that 4.6 million jobs may go unfilled by 2008, with three-quarters of these positions requiring college degrees.

$aving your bottom line

A survey of Fortune 500 companies reveals that hiring an interim co op to a full-time position saves the company more than $6,000 in cost per hire.

Solution oriented productivity

Over 80% of Fortune 500 companies employ students as interns or co ops. Studies show that interns are often as productive as regular employees and have more positive attitudes during their work period. In addition, when hiring former co ops/interns to full-time positions, businesses realize higher productivity, higher retention rates and lower recruiting costs.

Building strong relationships with your future work force

CEIA membership guarantees you connections to the college and university representatives who can link you to intern and co op candidates, faculty contacts and student organizations.
