As a former director of a University Career Center, I can attest to how easy it is to find willing and enthusiastic interns! In many cases, it isn't necessary to have a formal "internship program." Often, all you need is a great job description outlining the experiences an intern can expect to have and a career center will be happy to post it. Offering to interview on campus is another great way to hire an intern. Most university career centers will bend over backwards to accommodate employers.

You may be amazed at the skills and talents an intern brings. As you mention, you can't beat the opportunity to use an internship as an extended job interview. It's a win-win all around!

Thanks for underscoring the ease of the process, Miriam. I think a lot of people think hiring an intern is more trouble than its worth, when in fact it's often no work at all.
