Eight Ways To Improve Your Fall Intern Search In A Pandemic

Interns are an integral part of a developing business, but finding the perfect intern for a stint at a company can be a challenging process. The recent developments in all industries and the situation with COVID-19 makes fall internships this year a little different from previous years. This fall's batch of interns will be facing a brand-new employment environment and a largely remote working space. Companies are nothing if not adaptable, and finding the right intern to operate within the restrictions of society will require extensive adaptation by the business.

In this Forbes Human Resources Council article, Jay Polaki, HR Geckos' Founder and CEO, shares how emotional intelligence bolsters business results.

Employers should convert their summer interns to brand ambassadors now, highlight flexible schedules, and remote work.

Use multichannel recruitment campaigns to engage and expand intern pools across generations successfully.
