WHAT KIND OF INTERNSHIP
When considering an internship intervention, it is important to decide exactly what kind of internship your organisation is able to offer. Always keep in mind the following:
Interns are not a source of cheap labour who are used to do low skill jobs that no one else wants to do.
An internship must ensure that useful work related skills are passed onto the intern so that he/she becomes marketable when looking for a permanent job.
A good internship requires management and supervisory time. An internship is an investment in the future.
The internship year enables the organisation to see if any of the interns are a good fit for the organisation going forward.
