InternCLE podcast Episode: 019 – Medical Mutual – Susan Denton

Susan has been with Medical Mutual for the last 4 years.   Her background in teaching has helped her in the recruiting process. Medical Mutual has had an intern for some time.  Most summers there are between 20-35 interns.  A good portion of them are in the Information Technology space. 21 this year are in the IT area.   Interns are located in their downtown and Strongsville offices, but oriented downtown.  Medical Mutual’s internship is a pipeline for talent.  

The internships are primarily a summer internship, however some students at local colleges may continue to work at Medical Mutual.  Medical Mutual looks for strong communication skills in internship candidates. 

Interns go through a strength’s assessment at the beginning of the summer that they can use when they meet with their managers to set their goals.  They are also assigned 3 projects for the internship: a final presentation, a networking exercise and a mid-summer essay. Interns also have a volunteer day each year as well.  Medical Mutual has a strong community of giving in its organization. MMO also has a Cleveland day for their interns where they take a tour and do a scavenger hunt in Cleveland. 

Around CLE: Maximize Your Intern & Entry Talent ROI - Date: August 22, 2019 - Time: 09:00 AM -- 03:30 PM 

More and more employers are struggling to find the right people to join their team. And the pain is increasingly acute as baby boomers retire and young, college-educated people don't necessarily see Northeast Ohio as their post-college destination. Further, finding workers with the same experience as retiring baby boomers is virtually impossible. The talent gap can be avoided if employers focus on filling their pipeline – finding the right workers and developing them as needed. A formal internship program is the best incubator of talent for your future workforce and a key retention strategy that will also help you to gain a competitive recruiting edge.

Facilitated by national expert Dr. Robert Shindell, you can expect a highly interactive workshop that will transform your internship and entry talent hiring and management practices!
