Even though my old Agency's experience with Interns was mixed, I still think a dynamic program can provide real benefits. I think the problem lies with leadership on both sides. Leaders in the agency--especially those with close contact with the students--have to be great advocates of the program and sell it well in the government agency, and on the education side, the same goes for advisor/leader for the program in their institution allied with the government or industry. There has to be a real meeting of the minds on both sides for a program to work.
