Industry placements are focussed on providing bright, young professionals their first professional workplace experience. As a host company, you are required to meet certain criteria to ensure the placement is appropriate and meaningful. This includes involving the student in work-related and observational activities related to their area of study and providing relevant supervision.
We work closely with our Host Companies to make the process of hosting a student easy. We will help you create a formal Training Agreement, provide support and feedback to the student throughout the process, and we also arrange Workers’ Compensation Insurance. Readygrad is here to ensure your hosting experience is more than successful, and mutually beneficial for you and the student.
While there is no expectation to employ a student beyond the placement, many employers choose to. Our 2018 survey of 1,700 host companies indicated that 46% of hosts intended to offer their intern a position after the internship.
