Internships are valuable tools for both interns and employers. Staffing younger, inexperienced individuals offers employers the ability to get more work done while paying little or no wages, and obtain a fresh new perspective. For the intern, the opportunity means work experience, a resume builder, and the chance to test out whether you actually enjoy working in a particular field.
These days some universities are requiring undergraduates to amass a certain number of internship hours before they receive their degree. What was once a fun learning experience is becoming a necessity for many college students to find a job after graduation. While some object to little or no wages, many enjoy the experience and are optimistic about the effects of real on-the-job experience on their chances for the stable, well-paying job they aspire to. Hornblower is proud to say that all of its interns are paid, and are often rehired when they reapply for employment
One of Hornblower’s summer interns had this to say about his internship: “In the month and a half I’ve been here, I’ve already learned so much. Everyone in the office is extremely personable and has offered to teach me something new. I never thought I’d get the chance to work like this while in college, and I’m really looking forward to the next couple months here!” Another intern commented as well, saying: “I was required to find a full-time internship my last semester of college in order to graduate. I didn’t know what to expect but was excited to get hands on experience. The Hornblower team made me feel welcome, valued my opinions, and they were great mentors throughout my internship. It was the perfect chance for me to get real work experience and expand my professional network."
