As an often time-strapped business owner, I understand the benefits that interns can bring to a business. My interns help me with social networking, general organizational assistance and help with specific tasks that I may not otherwise have time to accomplish. Interns are a valuable human resource tool, and understanding the world of internships and the many regulations it entails can sometimes be a bit tricky. NACE, the National Association of Colleges and Employers, can become a valuable asset to you, helping to not only connect you to your ideal interns, but to assist you in understanding the broad scope of all that an internship entails.
NACE is an organization created in 1956 that helps connect college students with career opportunities such as internships. On June 30th of this year, NACE issued a position statement regarding unpaid internships.
