||Then during the lazy, hazy days of summer you are
blessed with manna from heaven, or at least mannapower from
heaven. Interns, lots of them, eager for work and
tech-savvy. The only problem is half of your staff is on
vacation, and the other half is busy putting out fires.
You have a golden opportunity, but your energetic, go-getter
interns are wasted color coding your file folders or photocopying
the employee manual. We can help, and here's how:
- We can meet with you to determine which projects are likely
candidates for intranet, extranet
or web design projects.
- We can quickly train your interns to become web content
- Under our supervision, your interns will gather and develop
content for your new web site, application or intranet.
- Your interns get a chance to have plenty of face time with
your staff as they develop your content, they become
intimately familiar with many aspects of your business (apart
from the copy room).
- You get a new intranet, extranet, website or application
developed quickly and for very little money. You take
credit for this amazing idea and soon are promoted to Vice
President in Charge of Cruising Around in the Company
- We get a great new customer, and we do what we do best, add
value to the project. We also get to ride around in the
Company Convertible while those poor sap interns are working
themselves to death.
Now, you may have some questions. They might go a little
Q. Can't we just use you to train our people and then
cut you out of the loop?
A. You can, but you won't. Because your smart and
smart people know that web projects don't fail because of a lack
of HTML writers, they fail because firms don't understand what is
involved in running such a project. We know what to do, we
are more than happy to let you do the grunt work.
Q. No, really, what's in it for you once we get good at
A. You are always going to be better at what you do than
we ever will be, conversely, we are always going to be
better at web stuff than you are. You will always be
calling us to get the benefit of our experience and expertise, and
that's what we want. We don't hide the ball, we are more
than happy to teach you anything you want to know about web
application design, intranet management or web design; but we know
that at some point you need to make a living, and this is what
we do all day long!
Q. Will my interns like to be a part of this type of
