As the economy continues to struggle, business owners are hiring unpaid staff help offset company expenses. At a time when millions of people are unemployed or underemployed, folks are looking to "volunteer" their time in the hopes of getting hired when business improves. Scott Straub, a business expert and college professor, teaches businesses how to properly train and hire unpaid staff at his website http://howtogetfreehelp.com/ .
Many businesses, large and small, don’t have enough money to hire new staff, therefore, they are hiring “Unpaid Staff” to offset payroll expenses.
“I have utilized ‘unpaid’ staff, we call them interns, for over 10 years and it has saved my business tens of thousands of dollars and thousands of hours of work” says business owner and college professor Scott Straub. Over the past 5 years Scott has taught hundreds of business owners how to properly hire and train their unpaid staff. “You see, people are willing to help you if they get something in return. The key is to help your interns get what they need as they help you.”
What do the interns get out of the deal? Unemployed workers need "bullet points" on their resume and real world work experience, so by donating their time and expertise, they can bolster their resume.
For example, a writing intern might write a series of articles and press releases for a company. A marketing student at a local college could help a business set up a Facebook and Twitter account. An unemployed video technician could create and edit video projects the company website. After the internship is over, they might get hired or be given a good recommendation. Either way it's win/win.
Once business owners understand the process of hiring unpaid staff, they usually find dozens of tasks that can be handed off to interns.
