I’ve been pondering a post on interns by Matt Cholerton from Everyone Hates HR, and I have some questions. I am very curious about the use of HR interns. I’m relatively young in my HR career, and I often think back and wish I had some sort of experience as an HR intern. I’d like to delve into the topic of HR interns and HR internships, but I’d like to know a bit more about your experience.
In my (totally unqualified) opinion, I think that established pros should be actively seeking relationships with HR students and entry level HR professionals in order to provide job opportunities through internships. This might be absolutely crazy, but I can still remember my job search. It was very difficult. Much of my time was spent ignoring jobs that required a shred of experience, because I didn’t have any. An HR internship could have opened a lot of doors for me at that time. I plan to write on this at length in the near future, but for now, I’d like to know more about you and your organization.
This simple poll is… Well, it’s simple. It doesn’t really give me much information. If you could elaborate in the comments, I would greatly appreciate it.
