“Interns thrive in order and decline in chaos.” – Nicki Sanders
Do you want an intern to:
- Understand business your mission and goals
- Respect and protect the boundaries you set
- Know and represent your business well
- Have a valuable learning experience
- Help you increase your productivity and profits
- Become your next great employee
If you want your business to run well you must have strong systems in place. Your processes and systems help ensure that your customers receive quality products and great customer service. Recording your company’s operations helps you translate important knowledge that eliminates guess work and allows your intern to complete tasks more efficiently. Systems also allow you to expect consistent performance and evaluate your intern and internship program based on realistic expectations.
Take the time to develop and document proper systems and processes before you bring in an intern.
