But you can altogether be an attractive employer by keeping some of the following tips to keep your company updated.
Before you hire an intern, you should:
- Write an internship job role (JD) – Be as specific as possible when describing the roles and responsibilities. It assists candidates in determining whether they are a good fit for the internship and, more importantly, it assists you in avoiding those who aren’t. Here’s an illustration.
– You should create separate posts if you plan to hire interns for different roles (web development, content writing, etc.). It saves you the trouble of separating applications for various profiles.
You can also use Internshala to create custom questions that students must answer before submitting their applications. Through these questions, you can learn about the candidate’s expectations and assess her fit.
When you hired:
- Set the application status to ‘Hired’ at all times: This initiates an automated process that notifies the student’s college authorities and requests that they issue an online No Objection Certificate. This step ensures that the candidate is more accountable.
- Send a formal offer letter to the candidate, requesting that he or she sign and return a scanned copy of the letter as formal acceptance. It isn’t a match until both parties agree to it. A Sample Offer Letter is available for download.
Keep a few backup candidates on hand as well. If the chosen intern declines, you may extend the offer to the next best candidate.
