Our interns mean a lot to us here at VisionPoint. We take great pride in giving interns a challenging learning experience as well as perspective on why the work they are doing is important. I've had more than my share of internships over my two careers, and I'd like to share a few tips I have learned to follow when managing interns effectively.
I knew after my first day at VisionPoint that there was no reason to worry, it was evident that everyone in the office was incredibly welcoming. Within the first week I had had conversations with everyone and knew more than just first names.
My first intern experience was different than any idea I’d had in mind. Whenever I heard the word "intern" I thought of fetching coffee and making copies. But being a VisionPoint Marketing intern made me feel like part of the team - an equal.
