article, with internship program tips from Melissa Kenney Ngaruri


Interns working in your small business can be a win-win situation.

Your business gains a boost to creativity as well as the bottom line, and the intern gains experience and builds a resume. But as a small business owner, you want to make sure you use interns for maximum benefit.

From Patrick Hoover: "Several years ago Melissa took my office from one part-time intern position to one that now draws students from all academic grades - high school through graduate school designed to encourage all students interested in the legal profession. This program's unprecedented expansion and its great success are entirely the result of Melissa's hands on control and expansion of our intern program and her selfless dedication to inspiring youth and peers to build community and generational ties. After over 28 years as an attorney, I have Melissa to thank for encouraging me to go ahead and take the risk – to try a new internship program that creates a unique direct role for attorneys and interns. Melissa’s program created a win-win for my practice."
