Using the resources at hand is a skill many small business owners know all too well. And as the economy slowly but surely begins to improve, many industries have come out of survival mode. They’re beginning to appreciate the uptick in customer patronage and are realizing that an extra set of hands could come in handy.
The youthful outlook of a tech-savvy employee can go a long way in today’s social-media-centric world. With dozens of colleges in the area, student labor is in abundance. But that doesn’t mean nabbing the sharpest crayon in the box will be easy. But no worries, there’s a class for that.
On Tuesday, March 20, from 4p.m. – 7p.m at St. Joeseph’s University, Doyle Banquet Hall, Campus Philly, a local non-profit, the Main Line Chamber of Commerce, and Villanova University, have teamed to bring area businesses and local students together.
“Internships help the region retain talented individuals who graduate from our schools,” said Bernie Dagenais, president and CEO of the Main Line Chamber of Commerce. “The Main Line Chamber of Commerce is proud to support this event.”
Small to medium sized business owners are invited to attend an informative session beginning at 4p.m. A panel of local experts will give a presentation on creating and managing a successful intern program.
“Hiring the best interns as full-time employees is also a great way for companies to get the talent they need to help them thrive,” said Dagenais.
