Why Hire an Intern or Start an Internship Program?
Be More Productive
Keep your staff focused on strategic projects while interns pick up tasks that require less high-level expertise.
Leverage Entry-Level Talent
Let’s face it, not all aspects of everyone’s job requires someone with years of experience. Leverage smart, motivated students to get entry-level tasks done!
Build Stronger Leaders
Give new or existing managers the opportunity to guide and mentor your interns so they learn to be stronger leaders.
Internships are a great way to take entry-level talent for a test drive to see if they might be a longer term fit.
Diversify Your Workforce
Interns can bring a whole new, youthful, tech-native perspective to your team.
Pay it Forward
Internships offer a real-world experience that allows students to hone and professionalize core sills and helps in creating a better future workforce.
Consider Which Type of Internship
Is Right for You
On Site vs Virtual
Virtual internships are ideal during a pandemic, but also great for those who value flexibility. Employers can also expand their candidate pool to anyone with reliable internet access.
Paid VS Unpaid
The primary beneficiary of an unpaid internship must be the intern, and they limit you in terms of the amount and type of work that you can assign.
Group vs Independent
Perhaps all you need is a single intern to help with a set of projects. But consider the possibility of bringing on a group of students who could collaborate solutions to bigger, more strategic problems as well.
Credit vs No Credit
In order for an internship to qualify for college credit, it must clearly relate to an academic discipline, and interns may be required to demonstrate what they learned to their university.
“The center and the team I worked with were absolutely incredible. They were very welcoming and helpful. I not only learned but enjoyed spending time at work! learned techniques used in my field and was able to embrace/understand how individuals with a different culture than mine live. It was interesting to see the similarities and differences in the way were are brought up and different our lifestyles are.”
