Studies have shown that college graduates will decide where to live primarily based on job opportunities and lifestyle. So After 5 Detroit launched the unique and innovative After 5 Intern Program aimed at retaining young talent in Detroit.
By participating in the program, employers are able to introduce their new workers to Detroit's dynamic lifestyle and allow them the opportunity to meet hundreds of others their age, have fun, do some networking and begin to form bonds that will hopefully convince them that their future is in Detroit.
Since launching this program, we've hosted over to 18,000 interns, sponsored by numerous employers - both large and small. In 2019 alone, we expect to host over 3,500 interns!
So sign up your interns, new hires and co-ops, because the more companies that participate, the more vibrant our city looks and feels.
