Summer intern. In some companies, these words bring a sigh of relief because it means an extra set of hands. It means you’ll soon have someone in the office who can take on all those “back burner” projects.

For others, the words “summer intern” mean only more hassle and more items on the To-Do list. Now you’ll also have to manage an irresponsible collegiate on top of all your other daily duties.

Summer internship programs can be an effective and welcome addition to the office, if properly managed. Yesterday, Promotional Consultant Today shared five tips for summer intern success. Today, we share five more.

1. Break assignments into small tasks and review drafts early. Don’t turn interns loose on a project due in a month. Interns are new to the professional world, so have them complete drafts due at intervals so you point them in new directions before they go down a wrong road.

2. Share the big picture of how the company is doing and how they are contributing. Interns are curious about the industry they are working in and want to know how the company is faring. By sharing some insight on the bigger picture and how their projects fit in, they can bridge this knowledge gap and will be more motivated to deliver great results.

3. Encourage your interns to ask questions. Interns may not know if or when it’s ok to ask questions. If you are the intern’s manager, explain that he or she can ask you questions as this can save a lot of time in the long run.

4. Offer intern compensation in the form of software training, introductions to co-workers, and education about the field. Some employers may not be able to pay their student interns well, while others can. However, many of the best forms of compensation are free. Teach your interns the tools of your trade, whether that is Microsoft Excel, Salesforce, HootSuite or nuanced email tactics.

Teach them the invaluable business skills that you have accumulated and that can’t be learned in school. This knowledge is worth its weight in gold to ambitious students. Another simple value-add you can offer is to recommend books, webinars, blog or other information sources that students can access to become more versed in the field, and become a stronger applicant in the future.

5. Have Fun! Having interns at your office can and should be a lot of fun. These students come into the office for the first time with big ideas and big goals, and they will grow a tremendous amount in the course of your internship. They will also arrive with new ways of thinking and should be able to add an exciting dynamic to your office for however long they are there.
