Converting Student Interns to Regular Full Time Employees

Anonymous - Apr 13, 2018
Back to Ask the Experts

We hire many student interns for our pipeline recruiting. They come back each summer until they graduate. They are kept on the payroll and come back each summer, some work on projects throughout the year. When we want to hire them permanently, do we need to create a posting for them to apply? It seems this would be discouraging for others who see this listing since we know we want to hire them. In addition, they initially competed for the intern position in the beginning and we have been developing them for several years. Currently we are posting these jobs, however it is creating extra work and we feel it is misleading to external candidates and to our internal employees when we already know who we want to put in the position, since we have invested a lot of time and money on these students throughout the years.
