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.
