Once someone has completed computer training, they need real-life applications.
Linkedin (of course) presented an article that 45% of the jobs surveyed were filled by "direct source" where a recruiter found a resume on a resume board (such as Linkedin). We recognize that continuing education will enhance a person's Linkedin resume, especially in the context of a real-life internship.
[PS: This Linkedin article appeared in August: "Internships Are the New Entry-Level Jobs"]
We will occasionally bring someone on board to provide additional training.
- Even though it may include actual websites, the ABCInc internship program is similar to training which would be given in an educational environment; the internship experience is for the benefit of the intern.
- The intern, and his/her work, is under close supervision of existing staff even though our operations may be occasionally impeded.
- The intern is not necessarily entitled to a job at the conclusion of the internship.
BlogBecause communication is important, an intern will create a public blog to help focus his/her attention on goals and experiences. ABCInc uses Blogger.com because Google provides the actual back-end mechanics.
The intern will learn the difference between content and presentation without the distraction of making a website from scratch.
