In South Africa too

Most news covered here are from the US, so I thought interesting to link to this South African story from an intern who advises employers on how to do it best.

Internships should be strategically integrated into a company’s itinerary so that when an intern is taken in, he or she knows exactly what to do, why they are doing it and how it fits into the ‘bigger scheme of things’. They shouldn’t be there just to make coffee or push papers.

And they should be honestly paid, if I may. Overall, a good perspective.
