Ahh yes, the age old question…
Why hire interns?
Well, quite simply, we call that WII-FM…or:
“What’s In It For Me?”
An absolutely valid question and to be quite frank, not everyone is built to be a mentor. You’ve got to have a passion for education and love watching people you work with grow and morph into a great event planner because of your influence and training.
And sure, I’m sure if you’ve ever hired an intern who turned out to be a bit of a dud or was constantly checking Facebook, or heaven-forbid, was 20 minutes late to work every morning, you might be thinking: NOPE. No thanks.
No, no, I totally get it.
But take a moment and hear us out…this is why we think that interns are WORTH taking the risk…
