Institutionā€ƒ MEMO To: Dick Elders, Senior General Manager From: Date: July 31, 2016 Subject: Proposed Introduction of Internship Program in the Organization Thank you for giving the opportunity to become a member your powerful team. I know the benefits of being in the organization and most certainly, an unemployed student or recent graduate out there would benefit from a similar opportunity.
I am writing to convince you that there are benefits in having an internship program in the organization and in doing so; this memo seeks to take you through six requirements that differentiate the interns from the employees. I understand the concerns of the organization with regard to introduction of the internship program. The organization feels that the introduction of the program would greatly affect the wage bill considering that the interns might require to be paid just as any other employee. While this might be true in some instances, there are structures of the laws and regulations that the organization might utilize to benefit not only the organization, but also the interns.
The Department of Labor (DOL) has an established six-step mechanism of determining whether an intern qualifies under unpaid internship program (USAJOBS, 2016). This means that if well designed, the organization can get the chance to establish a program for unpaid interns and in exchange, give the college students and recent graduates an important learning opportunity. In doing so, the organization will not only be tapping into the most creative brains in Los Angeles but also it will be creating value for itself and for the future of the region by ensuring that there is a pool of well-trained scholar to draw from whenever an opportunity such as the operations research analyst is open.
In order to establish such a program, the organization only requires ensuring that the internship is similar to the training given in the actual educational environment. The achievement of this only requires the placement of the students in job commitments that offer them practical skills in reinforcement of the theoretical skills.
Secondly, the program ought to be constructed in a way that it majorly seeks to benefit the intern. Putting the students in positions where they benefit through learning ensures that they meet this obligation.
Thirdly, the interns ought not to displace regular employees but rather works under their close supervision. The organization benefits by managing to achieve their objectives faster with the help of the interns.
The fourth requirement is that the employer derives no direct benefits from the program but as structured, allowing the interns to carry out simple tasks in the organization indirectly benefits the organization.
The fifth requirement indicates that the interns are not necessarily entitled to a job at the end of their internship while the sixth requires both the employer and the intern to understand that the intern is not entitled to any payment for the time spent learning under the internship.
Achieving and meeting the requirements only requires the organization to understand the learning needs of the students, advertise the internship opportunities as unpaid, and ensure that the students get to learn. With many college students and recent graduates in Los Angeles still unemployed, there is a lot of room for the creation of the unpaid internship. I thank you for taking time to read this and I am confident that you will realize the benefits and legally easy process of establishing unpaid internships program in the organization.
Summary In summary the format of the persuasive memo, ensure that the audience understands it as a formal request. The author prepared the memo by first expressing gratitude for the opportunity granted to work with the organization and then showed the reader that the good understanding of the organization.
The concerns of the organization were linked to the legal facts from the Department of Labor and illustrated how the organization might be able to meet the six requirements for legally defined unpaid internship.
Lastly, the memo concludes with the expression of gratitude for the time taken to read, expression of hope for the establishment of the program, and an offer to participate in the team that deliberates on the establishment of the program.
These elements help in connecting the reader with the author and also connecting the organization to the world by providing facts that may lead to the persuasion on the establishment of the program.
