Internships truly are the initial building blocks for a comprehensive recruitment strategy. A well-structured internship program can help you achieve the following objectives:
- Pipeline for full-time hires – A strong internship program helps you establish presence in a crowded marketplace, and sort-through potential full-time hires to ensure that there is a fit on both sides for a career after graduation
- Special Projects and Temporary Talent – With the right type of high-quality talent, sometimes even experienced students; companies are able to staff interns on special projects that require specific skillsets. A good example is an Otak2 client who was able to revamp part of their manufacturing process due to a new chemical development process pioneered by an Otak2 intern who had previous work experience in Switzerland in the relevant field.
- Targeted Branding – Smaller companies or more local firms look at internships and participation with recruiters such as Otak2 as an opportunity to increase awareness about their firm, and allow for top Malaysian students from around the world an opportunity to gain familiarity with their business model.
- Networking & Business Development – Most companies often discount the benefits an internship program can bring in terms of building connections between the right sorts of people. Even if an intern may not return to work for your company post-graduation, the type of future opportunities and doors they might open through where they might be placed in the future is countless.
