INROADS KNOWS TALENT

We are committed to connecting our corporate partners with highly qualified, diverse candidates who are ready to contribute on Day 1. We know it’s not about how many students you meet, but how well those students fit your positions. As your strategic partner providing talent to meet your diversity workforce needs, and talent from our professional graduate network – we are in this for the long-term, just like you.

INROADS Interns are the best and brightest diverse high school and undergraduate college and university students in North America. These outstanding students aspire to professional and leadership careers. They also attend four-year university programs or colleges and over 115 majors including business, accounting, actuarial science, engineering, computer and information sciences, sales, marketing, allied health, healthcare management, and retail store management. Interns must be highly motivated, resilient, and have the ability to get along well with others. As a leading international organization providing academic support and career training and guidance to nearly 1,800 Interns sponsored by over 200 companies, INROADS has been instrumental in sparking tremendous growth in the corporate world's commitment to making a substantial investment in future leadership for itself, as well as the greater community.

Developing Your Future Workforce

The INROADS process for developing Interns for professional corporate positions involves recruitment, multi-year summer Internships, and year-round coaching, and training activities. Through this system, INROADS Interns begin to learn the distinctive characteristics of the corporate world, develop required social skills and adeptness, and unravel some of the mysteries and complexities of the corporate community.
