How To Host An Intern

Hosting an internship with your organisation is a simple and effective way to connect with graduate talent. Internships are increasingly popular choices for motivated graduates looking to enhance their skills, connect with industry professionals, and gain real-world experience to help them in their career journey. University graduates bring a new and fresh approach to companies with their current work or ongoing projects. Internship experiences comprise of an internship placement with a host organisation, and reflective assessment tasks to reinforce students’ understanding and interpretation of the workplace.

To host an intern in your organisation, all you need to provide is:

  • A professional work environment
  • A dedicated mentor with relevant qualifications in the areas of Accounting or IT
  • Relevant tasks appropriate to their area of study- either IT or Accounting
  • Two points of feedback at the middle and end of the internship placement via an easy online form
