Intern Town - paid review

the following is a paid review

There's a new intern website available for companies, universities and students across the globe. At first I wasn't sure I would accept this assignment - but after an hour of reading through the site I'm eager to get the word out. Basically Intern Town - a UK based company - allows companies to post available internships in Europe. So far I've found most are available in the UK and Spain. Some are right on Brighton Beach. Nice.

Okay, my first thought when I hear the word "intern" is "no pay" -- however, I easily found a handful of paid internships. Hey, some pay is better than no pay - especially when you're getting college credit and invaluable life experience. Others offered some kind of stipend - like mileage reimbursement.

There are two ways to use this site. As an intern, you can search for available internships AND you can post your resume and availability. Companies can post available internships AND search for available interns. Easy-peasy.

One thing the site seems geared toward is the idea of having multilingual interns. This shows in their search options. The idea is to have students/interns to translate web content or deal with customers in different languages, thus expanding the company's customer base.

If you're a student, check it out and let me know what you think. This is a great opportunity to find work and build contacts abroad. If you have a company in the UK, check it out. Interns are hard workers. They have the passion to get started in their industry of study. They're eager to work and learn. I know. I've worked with many. And why not expand your business by hiring a multilingual intern?

I'd say Intern Town is off to a great start as a place for easy, hassle-free networking. For more info, you can read their mission in their own words here. Of course, they explain it way better than I could.

Thumbs up guys and gals of Intern Town. Here's to a bright future for you and all your members.
