Hire an intern. It's good for you. It's good for our community.
An intern allows your organization to take advantage of short-term support, without making a commitment to a new fulltime employee. The additional capacity an intern can provide can help your employees be more productive by preventing them from becoming overburdened by side projects, as well as free them up to tasks where expertise is required.
Benefits of Hiring an Intern:
- Tap young, creative talent with the latest skills
- Get to know the next generation of employees…and customers
- Help retain talent in Greater Bemidji Region
- Test drives potential new employees
Offering an internship is an excellent way to give back to the community.
In a world where knowledge and skills are very mobile, growing, retaining and attracting talent is critical for the Greater Bemidji Region and your organization. A shrinking labor force, and the retirement of the baby boomer population add urgency to this issue. Hiring interns not only helps students in our community get real world experience; it enhances the local labor force as a whole.
Hiring a student is a great solution for a short term project.
Do you have a short term project that you need help with, but don't want to commit to a semester long internship? Consider hiring a student! Hiring a student to work on a special project is significantly less expensive than hiring a consultant, and you get the benefit of fresh ideas, training and experience with the latest technologies.
