What's in an 'intern?' A go-fer and coffee fetcher? Another pair of hands? Just another person to keep busy during the summer months? FindLaw's Eagan, Minnesota office has confronted these challenges and stereotypes head on in the 3 years since they began and developed the FindLaw Customer Operations summer intern program. With a focus on real world experiences and real world results, the team leaders and mangers at FindLaw and their interns have developed an experience that gives as good as it gets.
The FindLaw internship program draws from full time students at university and grad programs from around Minnesota such as the University of Minnesota, William Mitchell School of Law and Bethel University. The program has been structured to provide a consistent base of experience starting at the beginning with the recruitment and interview process. The structure then allows the employees at FindLaw to give and get what their interns need most, meaningful assignments from a project based program. Each intern is given a mentor at the beginning of their time with FindLaw. With that mentor, they plan goals for their time with the company. The mentors meet often with their interns and then meet with the team leads to insure all feedback on work projects is communicated.
