It’s almost summer, and at DrupalEasy, that means it is almost Intern Season! Our Spring Drupal Career Online class is three-fourths of the way to graduation, and we have just three budding Drupalists who are looking for work experience through internships (the others are already spoken for!) If you’ve got too much to do, and not enough capacity to do it, an intern might be just the ticket through our (Work Experience) WE Drupal Program.
We love sowing the Drupal Community with well-trained new talent, all of whom have already devoted hundreds of hours, thousands of dollars, and more than three months of their lives to learning, practicing, engaging and developing their passions for Drupal in their quest to become professionals. We’ve found that they have a lot to offer organizations who can use their eager new Drupal passion and help them build really great first Drupal Experience entries on their resumes. If you need some extra bandwidth, or have some tasks or projects suited to a new site-builder type, why not engage an intern?
Hosting an intern is also a great way to test out talent and take some of the lower-level workload off of senior developers (like taking care of your own site, or those simpler tasks you need to get done for your clients.) Here’s the deal: you bring on a graduate of our Drupal Career training program, either paid or unpaid in mid-June. They devote their new Drupal enthusiasm and best-practice foundational skills to your projects for 2 to 3 months while you give them some guidance and experience. You and the intern then decide if they move on, or continue on as an (already indoctrinated) contractor or employee.
Summer is just around the corner, so WE hope you don’t delay.
