Internships are a beneficial, cost effective way to utilize talented students and promote your company.
The Obvious Benefits
Since interns are often looking for a way to showcase their talents in order to jumpstart their careers, they often prove to be valuable assets to an organization. By hiring a UVU intern, you will receive:
- low-cost, high-quality labor
- short-term commitments to meet peak/seasonal needs
- a low-risk recruiting activity
- a recruiting edge on UVU campus
- low-cost method of training potential employees
- fresh ideas from emerging professionals
The Hidden Benefits
In building upon the skills and competencies UVU interns can provide, hiring multiple students creates an incentive for each intern to be seen as the best in the group. Your organization will reap the benefits of even greater dedication and hard work. You now have the most qualified job candidates already in your employment, which gives you complete control over the quality of full-time hires.
The word travels fast. When students experience great learning opportunities, they inevitably share that experience with fellow classmates. Whether the goal is to fill opening positions or increase awareness and sales, word of mouth through former interns is a great way to generate traffic toward your organization.
