This guideline provides the companies with specific suggestion on how to host internships. The guideline covers topic such as: creation of fruitful cooperation with VET institutions; organisation and tutoring of the internship.
In recent years, the internship has been for the company one of the methods to be able to evaluate, train and recruit staff in the organization of the company that can contribute to the development of the company business. But this is the point of view of the companies but for the guys who meet for the first time the world of work, what does all this represent? It is necessary to remember that internship is a period of training, during which the trainee makes his first experience in the workplace and business. Through the internship, intern can acquire a professionalism and practical training that the study paths do not offer, as well as verify in the field his skills and define if this specific job is suitable for his characteristics. in traditional training, the company identifies a tutor who can assist the intern during his stay and help him to know the working methods and internal regulations. But to select the internship what are the methods most used by companies? And fort selection a virtual intern the companies using the same method?
In the next section we will see which are the most used tools for the selection of general staff of interns, but here we focus on why companies prefer to start an internship as a staff selection tool. Many of the studies carried out in recent years show that young people often have an unrealistic view of the economic world. The internship is therefore seen as an opportunity to get to know the business world with the aim of understanding if you are ready for the challenge or not. For the serious companies the internship is a tool to look for valid collaborators with the aim of increasing human capital. They teach them the company vocabulary, perhaps starting with photocopies, to make them then gradually move to semi-operational assignments. Through an internship a new resource can be known and observed calmly in such a way that the 6/12 months of internships become a mutual trial period: The managers get to know the young person, but the young person can also understand if he likes to work in that reality or not. So, the internship period benefits both the company and the young people, because it smoothest the transition to a real contract. for this reason, the selection process of an intern is particularly significant. The company costs in terms of time, human resources, economic and material resources used in the on-the-job training phase are truly relevant. In a period characterized by the dematerialization of procedures, the human element acquires a vital importance for companies. For this reason, the tools used in the research phase are particularly detailed and elaborated as we will see in the next paragraph.
