Your organization has decided to take on interns – What will you, as a potential supervisor, do with them?
If your answer to this question involves making coffee and taking lunch orders, you’ll be sure to find yourself with unhappy interns, a frustrated staff, and a program that fails to take advantage of the full potential your student-workers can offer. Let’s face it: recruiting has changed, and “top talent” starts out in the top internship programs.
Recent research of over 150,000 college students conducted by Intern Bridge found that one of the leading gaps in internship programming stems from pairing students with supervisors who are not adequately prepared to work with today’s college students. In fact, the study found that 93% of students who reported working with effective supervisors would return to the host organization for full-time employments.
