The Fikes Companies – HR/Learning and Development department Internship

The Fikes Companies Learning and Development department (part of Human Resources) is looking for an Intern for summer 2021. The Intern will use the competency list and skills gap data gathered in the Talent Review process to research, identify, and recommend outsourced core skills content for our CEFCO management teams (District Managers, Store Managers, and Assistant Store Managers).  The recommendation should include cost, content, time, and coaching support beyond the training.  Additionally, the Intern will work with an Instructional Designer to outline post-training practice activities (concepts), managerial support, and accountability tools.  The resulting outline is the foundation to what will become the CEFCO Leadership Development curriculum.   In addition, the Intern will identify a way to formally use “Succession” data from the Talent Reviews to create the training pipeline for the Certified Training Store program, specifically for internal manager training candidates.

What the Intern will gain:    The Intern will gain research experience, relying on data to identify gaps and create prioritization in a real-world environment considering limitations, barriers, and current business challenges.  The Intern will research cutting edge communication, technology, and off-the-shelf programs and make recommendations to apply their findings within the organization.

What they will learn:

  • How to use data to make informed decisions.
  • How to avoid selecting and creating training events that do not produce behavioral changes. Instead, they will outline the design of interactions with intentional practice with feedback to impact change and speed adoption.
  • How to leverage technology to communicate and teach.

What we are looking for:

  • College Junior or Senior with an expected graduation of December 2021 or anytime in 2022.
  • Pursuing a degree in Human Resources (with an emphasis in Instructional Design, Training or Leadership) or Digital Communication.

All Internships are paid, and are located at The Fikes Companies HQ in Temple, TX.

Sponsorship and relocation assistance are not available for Internships.

The Fikes Companies is an Equal Opportunity Employer.
