I like the answer that this professor of management gives to a private assets management company planning to start an internship program. Not sure they had the best intentions:
How do we best integrate the individual into the flow of our business without overwhelming his/her capacity or our resources?
The professor, Sally Power, doesn’t give them a break:
Second, request that one or two employees serve as mentors to the intern. Mentoring works best as a volunteer project and is most effective when mentor and intern have an affinity for each other. Ask for volunteers.
Looks like this intern will get a real apprenticeship, rather than offering free labor to an organization that manages the millions of others.
