Perhaps one of the advantages of hiring interns is the fact that they are very teachable. It is because it is easier to teach someone with no skills to do a job properly than somebody who already has experience because it is hard to break the bad habits they already have. Interns are eager to learn practical work experience so they are very competent and results-driven.
When you give them specific instructions, they’ll most likely follow them to complete their tasks successfully. And since they belong in the younger generation, they are much more progressive and open to new ideas. They can bring new perspective. Young minds can teach the older ones so it is also important to make their opinions known and heard.
