INTERNal affairs

A good friend of mine said to me "Why don't you get yourself an intern (get it?)?" When I was talking to him about my company. The thought never occurred to me. I mean an intern? really? I thought those things were reserved for big time places. But he continued "Colleges are full of people who are willing to work for free. They get experience, AND college credit. You should try it."

So I did.

I went to Nassau Community College as well as Hofstra University. Nassau had cancelled their intern program this semester (I have to go back and try again in April), but Hofstra had two places where I could look for one. It seems to be very easy. Then another thought crossed my mind. I have to interview and "hire" one of these people. I have no idea how to go about looking for an intern. I figured there was some complicated process and I would just be given one. This should be interesting......

10/21/08 update: Looks like it was a little harder after all. Never did get my intern (came close a few times), turns out that working at a radio station isn't as big of a draw as (say) working for MTV. Who knew?
