Craft the perfect intern experience

At Intel, an internship is not about pushing paper and making coffee. We give interns an incredible experience with real business problems to solve. Today’s millennial generation want an “experience” and want to make an impact during their time working for us. With the competition for great talent we want to give our interns a memorable experience with lots of opportunity to really get ingrained in our culture and learn what our business is all about.

​Please answer the following:

1) Put together a proposal outlining the various intern activities, and allocate a budget
percentage for each activity across the multiple sites. Keep in mind there are budget limitations
to all projects.

2) How do we ensure the interns at the smaller sites are getting just as good of an experience
as those at the larger sites?
