Our podcast, The Intern Whisperer shares weekly tips to employers who want to leverage the power of intern talent in your business. Tips like the 7 Criteria for Unpaid Interns, how to develop employee mentor skills as well as your interns and remembering that we are all interns in this tech driven world.
We also talk about the Future of Work. We ask our guests to share what they believe job opportunities and their respective industries will look like 5-10 years from now. We have seen through COVID how this changed history overnight for the world.
We are calling on our audience members to weigh in on a story, share your perspective or ask a question. Below is our 2021 show schedule and a step by step guide how to send your opinion to us in audio format.
Guidelines to Contribute
Open the recording app
If you have an iPhone, the app you'll need is called Voice Memos, and it comes with the phone. Search for it, or look in the "Utilities" folder.
Get in position
The internal mic on your phone is surprisingly good — there's no need to add headphones or any attachments to make a great recording. The easiest way to get the mic in a good position is to hold it to your ear, as if you're talking on the phone.
If you'd rather hold it out in front of you, make sure it's not too close — you want it about 4 inches away.
Start the recording
Push the red button — you'll know it's recording when the counter starts and you see the waveform dancing as you talk. Here's what it looks like on an iPhone:
And here's what it looks like using Smart Voice Recorder on an Android phone:
Tell us your story
First, tell us your full name, city/state, and the industry you specialize.
Please be sure to state the name of the industry you want to share your predictions.
Please share your opinions/thoughts on these questions:
How has your industry changed since COVID
How will artificial intelligence morph the future of your industry?
What jobs do you believe will disappear and why?
What jobs will be created because of artificial intelligence, robots, or innovation?
How will this impact our economy?
You can write out what you plan to say if you'd like, but the strongest recordings sound casual and conversational, not like you're reading.
When you're finished, tap "Done."
Save it and send it
Give the recording a name that makes sense to you (like your full name and the date), and
save the recording. Then open up the file by tapping the recording, and click the share button on the bottom left-hand corner (it looks like a box with an arrow coming out of it). Choose "Mail," and send it to us at firstname.lastname@example.org
In the subject line, please add the name of the industry you want to contribute and be sure to include where you live and your full name so we know how to spell it.
If you include your mailing address, we will send you an Intern Pursuit Game t-shirt or stickers, or Intern Pursuit t-shirt. Be sure to share you t-shirt size. Thanks! We're excited to hear your thoughts and share with our audience.
