Interning: You’re Doin It Wrong

Lunchtime at work

Ask A Manager Alison Green tackles the question of how much guidance interns should need.

A reader asked why her interns are coming in late or not at all, and doing other unprofessional things.

“Many, many interns really don’t know this stuff. It’s part of the price you pay for hiring really cheap labor; you get to teach it to them,” Green says.

But as for the intern falling asleep in a meeting (which also happened), that is bad, bad bad. Don’t do that.

And for more fun, read the story of “Satan’s intern come to stay”, also on AAM.
