Treat internships as a tryout

The employers who offer internships are simply trying to prepare future workers for the real world.

Is it asking too much for prospective employees to demonstrate critical thinking and be open to learning professional behavior? Is it unreasonable for employers to expect to get something for their investment of time and money?

A new survey from the American Management Association found that a wide majority of executives surveyed say the ability to think critically and solve problems, communicate effectively, collaborate and be innovative and creative are highly valued at every level of their company.

In fact, these are their priorities for employee development, talent management and succession planning in the next one to three years.
