We are in the process of looking to bring an intern on board. For the record, it's a paid part-time programming internship and we would like them to be local.
We always struggle on where to look for a good intern, someone who is passionate about programming, likes to be challenged, has a good (their young, so it doesn't need to great ... not yet at least) work ethic, and doesn't mind doing some low-level tasks.
We've had some luck at some of the local high schools, and not much at the local colleges.
- I'm curious as to where others are finding interns?
- How do you determine the good ones?
- What are you doing to make sure that they are setup for success within your organization?
There has got to be a better way.
