I spent a month interning in a new business management building in a small business center in one of my communities. The building was brand new, the owners were experienced business people, and I was very lucky to have a great internship with a company that provided me with a great education.
I spent my first week as an intern in the office of a new manager, and he was not happy with my attitude and work ethic. He did not like my dedication to my job, and it wasn’t until the second week of my internship that he stopped yelling at me.
After I got through my first week of work, I was told that I had earned the job and was now an employee in a company that offered me a solid education and job opportunity. So I took the job, and I’m enjoying it. But I’m a bit worried about my internship right now because I do not have a job lined up. I have two months to build up my resume and get a job.
I think the real problem is that companies have been so focused on their CEO’s and their jobs that they haven’t been looking at their interns. And even if they have, they’re not doing their job. I know it seems like a lot of companies are getting to be so focused on making their CEO’s or their CEO’s jobs look more important that they’ve forgotten to hire interns.
I think the real problem is that companies are so focused on their CEO’s jobs that they don’t hire interns, and if they hire interns, they dont do their job. I agree with you that its a problem. But it’s not as simple as just saying “Get a job.” If you don’t have a job lined up, you’re stuck unemployed and that sucks.
It is a problem however, because it keeps them from hiring interns. It is a problem because in order for a company to hire interns, they have to have something to offer the intern position. If there is a job, but no internship, then that means they dont know what theyre doing, theyre not competent, or something else, and they need interns.
The problem is interns are, by definition, not real workers. I get that. It’s just that there are so many businesses in this country that hire interns that it makes a lot of sense to hire someone just to cover their position. Now, how many companies actually hire interns? Almost none. That is a problem because it keeps them from finding the right intern for their position, which is the only way they can hire more interns.
This problem is compounded by the fact that there is no legal requirement that all companies have an intern. Some just hire someone for the pay, while others hire someone for the position. Which is the better way? Well, the easier way would be to hire someone just to cover their position, because doing a real job is obviously not the best way. The other problem is that internships are almost always an extremely short term position.
This is another common problem, but I think the solution is actually quite simple. Companies that do not pay interns should start hiring them as employees until they are able to hire someone who is willing to take a job off of their hands. Companies that do pay for internships should do their research and interview candidates for the position who look as interesting as possible, because it is no fun having someone you have to look over for a few hours.
I am not saying that you would be better off paying your interns some extra money than not paying them at all. The only difference would be that you wouldn’t have to interview them for the position.
