Applications Open for the Adecco Group’s 2021 ‘CEO for One Month’ Program

Internship program offers an inside look at running a Fortune Global 500 company

JACKSONVILLE, Fla. – Feb. 16, 2021 – The Adecco Group, the world’s leading talent advisory and solutions company, is looking for its 2021 ‘CEO for One Month’ in the U.S. Through the internship program, one talented individual will experience a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to work alongside the company’s executive leadership, supporting the day-to-day operations of a multinational organization.

The Group will select 10 finalists from across the nation to participate in a leadership boot camp this May, where they will undergo a series of activities and challenges designed to put their skills to the test. The company’s senior leaders will serve as mentors throughout the boot camp, and at the conclusion, they will select this year’s U.S. ‘CEO for One Month.’ Once chosen, the U.S. ‘CEO’ will participate in a month-long, paid internship program, shadowing the company’s executive leadership.

A post-pandemic world of work will demand a new set of skills from our future leaders,” said Joyce Russell, president of the Adecco Group U.S. Foundation. “Our program equips individuals with the business know-how and emotional intelligence required to navigate and thrive in the new normal and beyond. This is an incredible opportunity to build lifelong, meaningful relationships with an extraordinary group of people.

The ‘CEO for One Month’ program takes place across the company’s global footprint in more than 40 countries, giving participants the chance to become their country’s respective ‘CEO for One Month.’ Those selected to be their country’s ‘CEO,’ including the U.S. ‘CEO,’ will have the opportunity to make the shortlist of 10 country finalists and participate in a global boot camp. Ultimately, one will be named the Adecco Group’s 2021 ‘Global CEO for One Month’ and will go on to shadow the company’s CEO, Alain Dehaze.

U.S. candidates interested in submitting an application for the Adecco Group’s 2021 ‘CEO for One Month’ internship program should apply here by April 16. For the latest updates, follow @AdeccoGroupNA and #CEOforOneMonth on social media.
