There are several reasons interns are a strong investment for any company:
- Perspective: Fresh perspective brought to the company
- Trial Period: Ability to test-out a potential candidate for a full-time role
- Cost Effective: Less expensive labor than a full-time employee
- Evangelists: Interns will tell their friends if they have a great experience working at a company, giving you a reputation for a “best place to work”
Hiring an intern can be one of the best investments a company can make. The investment doesn’t even have to impact your bottom line – learn more about unpaid internships here.
