Shereen Kiddle is one half of Milk Kiddle Langmaid PR and she is also my fabulous boss.
Here are her tips for interns:
1. Be clear on the roles and items you can allocate to an intern, with scope for a range of skill sets and competencies.
Anthony Alsop, Digital Marketing Coordinator at the Richmond Football Club says it’s the extra work that his interns put in that make them stand out.
“Once you’ve sought out the right people to get the job, gone through the interview process and got the internship, the best way to win us over is do the work you don’t have to. Taking the optional work shows you’re keen and will always look good if you apply for the job down the road,” says Anthony. “From the few interns we have there’s one who does this all the time, and stands out from the pack by a country mile. If the job was full time we’d hire them in a heartbeat tomorrow.”
