                                INTERN RESOURCE GUIDE
   Welcome to the world of internships, apprenticeships and mentorships. This resource is both
   for individuals wanting experience or new skills and for businesses wanting to train and
   educate new workers.


DEFINING OUR TERMS

   Mentorships are focused on teaching an individual about an industry or profession. There’s
   little emphasis on gaining professional experience.
   Apprenticeships, often for little or no pay, focus on training in a specific trade or craft.
   Internships are the broadest category and are generally positions (full or part time) for less
   than a regular salary. The intern gains experience, knowledge, and exposure to a profession or
   industry. Businesses can develop workers into full-time employees or simply help build their
   industry. Students who have internships are more likely to get jobs in the same community
   through their contacts and experience.
   Internships (which will be used as an all encompassing term) can provide critical support for
   Santa Fe’s economy. Many businesses report difficulty finding workers and many young people
   have trouble finding stimulating jobs or careers. Internships are a tool to bridge the gap and
   address both problems.
   Internships give people a chance to jump-start a career. They often open up positions that
   individuals couldn’t get as regular jobs. These special opportunities can lead to professional
   contacts and future job offers or provide the chance to discover if a career is the right one.


OVERVIEW OF INTERNSHIPS IN SANTA FE

   Many businesses interviewed want to host interns. Many of them don’t do so because they
   don’t know how, can’t pay, or are too busy to look into it. The most successful internships here
   are often informal and begin when a personal connection brings a business and an individual
   together.


TIPS FOR YOUNG PEOPLE—GETTING A FOOT IN THE DOOR

   This guide is not exhaustive but will provide an overview on how internships work in different
   industries. Browse the websites, learn about the industry, and choose specific companies to
   approach.
   Many firms are willing to work with potential interns to find an arrangement beneficial to
   both. They will negotiate hours and days of work to fit an intern’s schedule. Also, a majority
   of businesses expressed a willingness to pay or hire an intern if he/she proves useful in the
   organization.
   If you can’t find what you are looking for in this guide, try networking in the community. Ask
   friends and family whom they know in the industry or who their friends might know. Again,
   research the industry; pick one or two companies that seem interesting; and call or drop by.
   Santa Fe is a small town—use that as an advantage.

                                     Creative Santa Fe Resource Package, 2007-2008 | Intern Resource Guide | 47
    Businesses want to know why they catch people’s attention. Explaining what attracted you to
    a firm and what you would like to learn will open doors. Ask in what areas a company needs
    help and offer to work a certain number of hours. If there is resistance try offering to work for
    a trial period. Pay attention to the firm’s concerns and make an effort to address them. Taking
    initiative is impressive and it will help you get a foot in the door.
    If any potential intern wants help in finding a position or getting the right skills to get hired
    there are resources available. These facilities are open to everyone.

TIPS FOR BUSINESSES—COMMUNICATION IS CRUCIAL

    Organizations hosting interns can greatly benefit from the hard work and fresh ideas of
    interns. It’s also a chance to train individuals and thus to cultivate potential future employees.
    It’s important that firms make no assumptions about what an intern knows. Tell interns in
    straightforward terms what is expected, what they should wear, and give them any other
    relevant guidelines for doing the job. Most of all encourage them to ask ANY questions they
    have. Communication is crucial to a successful internship for both parties.
