When a tag is funny

Today is Natio­nal inter­ns day. Let’s think about what it means. Inter­ns are the people we were at the begin­ning of our career. We were loo­king for new expe­riences, but also we were loo­king to build a way to have our inde­pen­dence in a socie­ty that requires it. If you can remem­ber these days, we were even rea­dy to work for free as long as we were doing some­thing inter­es­ting and that would give us some real work expe­rience. But the rea­li­ty was that too often we were offe­red to do low skills job and most of the time unpaid job. We were doing that dir­ty job, conse­quences of the bad mana­ge­ment and work organization.

Now that we are in a posi­tion to accept inter­ns in our pro­fes­sio­nal envi­ron­ment, does it mean that we need to act the same way people did with us years ago? I don’t think so because as their first employers, inter­ns will always remem­ber where they had their inter­n­ship and will be gra­te­ful toward us giving them the chance to try and explore their new­ly-acqui­red know­ledge and skills. Or they may remem­ber our bad practices.

A popu­lar word we often hear these days is inno­va­tion. Where does it come from? Most orga­ni­za­tions loo­king for it are sear­ching inside their walls and struggle trying to make it hap­pen or create it among­st their troops. The pro­blem is that as people get used to inter­ac­ting toge­ther, they slow­ly lose this capa­ci­ty to inno­vate. Inter­ns are a pret­ty good way to let inno­va­tion enter your orga­ni­za­tion at the very place you wan­ted it to hap­pen, the floor level. So next time you hear about an inter­n­ship pro­gram in your orga­ni­za­tion, before dele­ting the com­mu­ni­ca­tion, think twice. Maybe it is your only oppor­tu­ni­ty to make your inno­va­tion happen.
