Internships are a great way to boost your productivity, bring in fresh perspectives and develop future talent for your organization. They are also a great way for students to receive the hands-on experience they need to translate classroom learning into a business environment where they can make a contribution. The potential for creating a win-win situation for both sides is tremendous. To generate a mutually beneficial experience, it’s important to make sure the match is a good fit for both you and your intern.
