PAID BUSINESS CONSULTANT INTERNSHIP
The goal of the business internship is to educate the intern on what the practice of law looks like from a business perspective. The internship provides opportunities for the intern to apply business principles to a real competitive business environment. The internship will be split into two parts, the training period where the intern becomes familiar with the entirety of the operation process. Once the intern graduates from the training period, then the intern will begin phase two, the apprenticeship, and be expected to act as a consultant, critique the operation methodology and provide a strategic pitch on how to improve workflow. In doing so, the business intern will be expected to execute and implement his or her suggestions and measure the results.
The internship consists of an unpaid training period, followed by the paid apprenticeship. Details will be discussed with the applicant during the phone interview.
In addition to the hourly pay, each intern will be mentored by the managing partner whose goal is to grow the strengths of each intern by giving them ample opportunity to exercise his or her strengths. By doing this, the managing partner acts as a career counselor in addition to being a mentor. This internship does not lead to a job, but it is designed to be a stepping stone to propel interns towards their respective career goals. At the end of each internship, the managing partner will provide each intern with a thorough evaluation review and a letter of recommendation.
