Did you know that about 40% of full-time employees come from a company’s internship program? Interns provide companies with an array of perspectives and benefits they’ve likely never realized. One of the biggest perks is discovering quality talent without sifting through hundreds of resumes and holding tons of interviews for candidates that may or may not be qualified.
Hiring an intern is a valuable way to develop leadership programs, delegate tasks, seek out future talent, and improve the overall structure of your company. But what should you look for in an intern, and how should you set up your internship program for long-term success?
More and more companies are discovering the benefits of internship programs; Some of these companies will be offering paid programs while others will stick with the seemingly traditional, unpaid internship opportunities.
Your startup or growing company has a tight budget. You’re hoping to get a lot done, but only have a few employees. Has the thought of hiring an intern — or several interns — ever crossed your mind?
These benefits of hiring interns might persuade you to start an internship program:

An internship is a great way to see how much potential a student or recent graduate has in the field. You’ll get to see their skills and work ethic as an intern—and might choose to bring them on as a paid employee down the line.
An interested candidate takes on an internship in hopes of accomplishing something to use on their resume or in future interviews. Give them real, meaningful work that will help your organization run smoother, accomplish more, or be more successful.
Hiring an intern helps spread the word about your company—whether you mean to or not. If you’re an impressive internship supervisor and mentor, your interns will probably talk about their experience with peers, friends and family members, essentially advertising for your organization (but it’s free!)
