Are Interns the Way to Go?

Does your company hire interns? If you don’t, you may want to reconsider.

Internship programs offer many advantages for employers. A recently published article in Plastics News suggested internships can help fill the skills gap in our industry. As recruiters, we see the skills gap on a daily basis. So, of course, this sparked our curiosity.

It’s interesting to see that more and more companies are hiring interns, and now at even younger ages. Some companies are hiring interns in high school, and they’re tasked with more than just office filings and coffee runs.

The Viewpoint article, written by Don Loepp titled, “Interns Help Processors Fill the Skills Gap,” gives you a high-level overview of what’s included in the Internship Issue, which goes on to feature how many plastics processors are utilizing interns in a plethora of ways.
