As optimism in the economy continues to improve it is increasingly likely businesses will begin to expand their operations in order to take advantage of rising demand for goods and services; however it is also possible they may still be unsure if taking on permanent members of staff is the right decision. As a result, hiring interns might be a practical and beneficial solution.
This new Blue Paper outlines the ‘Pros and Cons’ for both companies considering offering internships as well as the young people and recent graduates considering such opportunities.
“More and more businesses are starting to see internships as a valuable, effective and low-risk means of evaluating the depth of talent that is currently available,” says Cheryl Jackson-Leafield, Marketing Manager of 4imprint UK and Ireland. “And often, it does result in firms finding people they want to take on full-time,” she added.
The paper also details legal obligations firms must consider, offers tips on how to find the best interns and finally addresses how both parties can get the most from the arrangement.
