- Display Note: Abstract: Consultant-internships are effective for rapid onboarding of higher education students into knowledge management (KM) positions, supporting them in bridging concepts and theories from their coursework into real-world information design and analysis projects. Building on a recently completed case study, this research uses template analysis methodology to examine skills and competences relevant to taxonomy design work, and the soft skills that employers both demand and struggle to articulate. This dual combination of information professional abilities is highly sought after in collaborative and virtual KM professional settings.
