The Importance of Internships | Q&A with Shay

Back when I was in college, I had an internship with Senator Patrick Colbeck. I think of like, the thirty-fourth district or something like that. He’s actually running for governor of the state of Michigan right now. Internships are really important for students coming out of college to be able to figure out what they want to do in the future. It’s also really important for Digital Resource to be able to offer internships and internship programs. It allows us to figure out what we really want to find in a future candidate. It allows us to give back to that community, and allows us to build a farm system. Because we’re growing so fast, it’s very difficult to find really great candidates and building this farm system of people we know have been here, are learning our processes, are really going to be great if they did decide that Digital Resource is the place for them full-time after graduation. It allows us to have these candidates ready, at our disposal to bring onto our team, and assist us in our major growth. Right now, we have two wonderful interns here at Digital Resource, and every single week they’re working on something new. They come in twice a week, and during their time here, they work on blogging, social media, project management, and just learn a lot of different things that we do here and how we work with our internal processes. They get to figure out what they love, and we get to figure out what they’re really great at. So, if in the future they do decide to come on to Digital Resource, we know where exactly to put them. To you business owners out there, really consider bringing an internship program in-house. Give back to the community, allow people to learn from you, and be able to grow your business actually as well. And for all you interns out there, or college students that should be interns, think about doing an internship. And make sure you are doing that with a company that you could possibly see a future with. For everyone watching out there who would possibly be taking an internship in the future, what’s your perfect internship like? What are you looking for in a future job? What do you really want to get out of an internship position? Let us know in the comments below, don’t forget to share our video, and like us on Facebook.
