Interns are a valuable support for any business. Interns can contribute fresh perspectives on organizational issues, offer additional help on larger projects and become brand advocates. Hiring interns is also an impactful way for businesses to contribute to the community by providing opportunities for students to develop practical skills and gain work experience. While many well-known internship programs are from large, multinational companies, small and medium enterprises (SMEs) can also benefit from integrating interns into their workforce and even create a pipeline of talent that eventually contribute as full-time employees.
However, SMEs face several challenges in engaging interns. Cost is a major concern, along with competition with other businesses of various sizes and reputation for the same pool of talent. Another challenge is effectively promoting their internship roles to students and higher education institutions. SMEs can overcome these challenges by building good internship programs and developing partnerships with education institutions.
