DVR Internship Program
The DVR Internship Program is a strategy to introduce many DVR customers to the
world of work who are well skilled but lack paid experience. It is a learning
experience for the customer to apply their talents and abilities in a paid job
setting that enables them to demonstrate valuable work skills.
In the DVR Internship Program, a DVR customer is matched with a local host
employer in the individual’s chosen career field. Interns generally spend
several months in their host employer’s work setting to experience the culture
and typical job demands that are expected in the selected field of work. The
specific length of time and work setting is agreed upon by the DVR Customer,
DVR Counselor, and host employer.
Host employers provide a paid internship for the DVR customer by hiring the
individual as a temporary employee. DVR reimburses the employer for all salary
and related costs on a monthly basis.
Paid internships have proven to play an integral role in the recruiting strategies
of many employers. Interns often become permanent hires, having been given the
opportunity to learn about your organization, while you directly observe and mentor
the individual's performance.
