Apprenticeships and Internships
As talent inequalities continue to broaden, the challenge many Americans face is not a lack of opportunities, but rather the skills and experience to fill available positions. The Adecco Group US Foundation is on a mission to close America’s growing skills gap by connecting people with relevant work-based learning experiences that directly address the talent demands of today and tomorrow. The Foundation works closely with Penn Foster, General Assembly, The National Urban League, and other non-profit groups developing effective work-based learning programs that empower, enrich, and create sustainable economic opportunity for all American workers. As a leading voice at the intersection of industry, education and government, we are accelerating the creation of upskilling pathways, enabling everyone to reach their full potential at work.
CEO for One Month
The CEO of tomorrow will be quite different from the CEO of today. Both have much to learn from each other. Our aim is to find creative, innovative leaders among today’s college students and offer them the career opportunity of a lifetime: the chance to spend a month with the Adecco Group North America CEO and senior leadership. It starts with students applying and presenting their credentials as to why they should be selected as one of the finalists to participate and compete in a rigorous boot camp. At the end of boot camp, only one of the finalists will be chosen as CEO for One Month and a one month paid internship. From there, the student will have the opportunity to compete with other CEO for One Month finalists from around the world for the global CEO for One Month, based in Zurich, Switzerland. In 2018, we received 7,400 applications for the program from 300 colleges and universities in the United States.
Military Alliance Program
The Military Alliance Program is a partnership between military affiliated groups and military installations in the United States to recruit and hire veterans, wounded warriors, National Guard and Reserve members, and military spouses. In addition to employment placement, we assist military families through career development including free resume coaching, interview preparation and complimentary access to customized, online training modules. In 2019, we employed over 6,000 veterans and military spouses.
