Evolving the Intern Experience

The Collegiate Career Development Program is a partnership of agriculture companies working together to evolve the intern experience by providing a one of a kind training opportunitiy for company interns.

Our mission is to make the jump from college to the professional world easier by linking companies hundreds of miles away and their interns attending K-State. Interns extend their summer experience in the CCD while receiving mentorship and growing their knowledge of their role, partner company and the industry. Interns participate in professional development opportunities, learn skills through modules and check in with peers and mentors weekly. 

Common majors that partake in the Collegiate Career Development Program range from accounting to sales to communications. Imagine the impact on an intern if they had a year instead of three months to become more connected to the company, confident in their abilities and ready to engage at a whole new level on their second internship or upon graduation.

The Advantage

In a typical summer internship program, engagement and industry specific skill development stop when the intern returns to school. The CCD Program bridges the gap of lost opportunity with supplemental skill development and continued intern and partner communication. 

The challenges faced today when hiring college graduates is not a lack of knowledge, but a lack of experience with execution in a professional work environment.

Imagine the difference between hiring someone with three months of experience and good potential or 12 months of experience and proven performance.
