Tapping Talent Through Internship Programs
As large businesses continue to cut internships and students increasingly need them in today's tight job market due to the recession, smaller businesses are finding it easier to attract more talented candidates while avoiding the costs and risks of hiring permanent employees. To find highly qualified interns, WSJ.com recommends identifying schools with students possessing the necessary skills, contacting these schools' career centers to obtain and assess students' schedules, and writing a detailed job description. Business owners also need to provide workers' compensation insurance and comply with all payroll laws.
