Summer of Biz Employer Launch

By Fiona Shaw
April 25 2019

Posted in Blog, Employer Resources

2019 is off to a great start for Summer of Biz, with amazing turnout at all our events and a whole new crop of committed students ready to take on internships this summer. But to offer internships, we don’t just need students – we also need employers! So now it’s time to start getting our 2019 employers on board.

Along with our sister programme Summer of Tech, we’re hosting our 2019 Employer Launch Event on May 7. This event is a chance to meet and chat with other employers (both those new to the Summer of Biz programme and those more experienced in hiring our interns), meet the Summer of Biz and Summer of Tech teams, and hear about how we can help you hire the perfect intern for your business in 2019.

The benefits of taking on an intern are endless. They help with succession planning, making sure you have skilled and experienced people to grow into your senior roles, they free up your existing senior staff to focus on the tasks that make you money, and they allow you to “try before you buy”, testing out potential employees before committing to new graduate hires. These are just some of the benefits of an intern – read more about the benefits here.

Summer of Biz helps you find the right intern for your business through assisting with recruitment for interns in HR and Marketing (running recruitment events and offering recruitment tools), offering professional development to students to prepare them for their internships, and supporting students and employers throughout the programme (and beyond).

If you’d like to learn more about how a Summer of Biz intern can help your business, register for our launch event. You can also email us on hello@summerofbiz.co.nz to find out more about the programme.
