Need a new website designed? Get an intern

August 18th, 2011 · 9 Comments · Irish Politics, Recession, Social Policy

Oman Removals in Kildare have advertised (Updated Link here) for a web designer intern on Job Bridge. If you have a look at their site you might see why they are in need. (PS I’m not sure if Continuum who did design work for Oman in 2008 are responsible for the current design.)

Now if you are a out of work or budding designer looking for mentoring or experience how would you expect to get it with a removals company whose business and expertise is not in the area of website design? If you are a removals company who don’t want to spend money on hiring a company to design your website what might you do if there is an intern scheme available?

These of course are the questions that the National Employment and Entitlements Service should be asking when accepting applications for the scheme.

By the way Job Bridge is now open to Sole Traders to apply to host interns. Previously forbidden from participating, someone has lobbied for the rules to be changed and voila those people working on their own who need a spare pair of free hands, who want recruit an intern can do so.

Oh yes if you own a property and pay management fees to Fisher Property Management you might wonder what you are paying for. They’ve advertised for a Maintenance/Cleaning Manager Intern post. – Updated link here  Amazing how many of these internships get manager tagged on for appearances sake.
