Are you considering taking interns?

Have you been thinking on taking interns? It is a very enriching platform, your business will find it very beneficial.

Internships are not popular just everywhere, and there is still a lot to do in understanding how beneficial it is for both, the student (or graduates) AND for the business/employees to have an active Student Internship Program (SIP) in their organization.

Many businesses still shy away from internship projects because in some countries the culture is still young and there are still too many myths around it. I was reading the other day an article at regarding the mutual benefits of such a program, and tips for the student when looking for a SIP. I liked the summary of the tips in this article, and I could not help but thinking that there is so much more to add in the list of the benefits. I would like to share a personal story about this:

Years ago my husband, due to a congenital condition, needed a very massive and invasive prosthetic implant to allow him walk and have a normal life. Given the gravity of this intervention we needed to make sure we did our research to find the right team of doctors and hospital. We were looking everywhere, US, Europe, Japan, and luckily for us we found him exactly in our home country - Italy. Long story short, my husband is living a happy life again thanks to this man, Dr. Ursino, and I will never forget the story he told us in one of the times we met. When Dr. Ursino was about to complete his specialization program as orthopedic surgeon and was looking for a place to work for his practical hours and was accepted near one of the best specialists in the area in Milano, in a team of surgeons that usually was not accepting just any one. After a very short time he was offered a job! He started to apply prostheses from day 1, along side with his mentor and very shortly alone, as head of the équipe. He not only is the best of his kind in Italy, head of the biggest orthopedic surgery clinic in Italy, but one of the best in Europe, and one of the most down to earth people I have met, a part from our hero! He is literally making people live a second life and I am not thankful just to Dr. Ursino, but also to his mentor who allowed for this talent to be discovered.

Internships not only make our future engineers, doctors, social workers, lawyers and teacher grow and become the best for our future generations but they also allow the businesses to fish for great talents, new ideas and for ways to grow their ventures.

Considering launching a SIP and start taking interns from AISB our our alumni? Let us know, we would like to feature your business in our ABC - Alumni Business Community. Thank you!
