Savvy Business Show: Hiring your First Intern!

How to hire your first intern/employee:

I know that personally this year has been a year where I’ve shifted massively to hiring people to do all the nitty-gritty for me. It’s been so exciting to delegate and outsource projects and work that’s not in my zone of genius. And I’m so grateful to have brought on my virtual assistant as a more permanent hire too.

At first the entire idea of hiring someone was overwhelming and daunting but as soon as I hired Samar I immediately felt like such a badass boss and CEO!

I know that many of you are in the phase of stepping into more of that CEO level too and so I figured having a conversation with my friend Alessandra, from Pollina PR, about the very topic of hiring your first intern would be helpful! Alessandra has hired quite a few in her time and together we’re bringing you a rich conversation filled with tips to help you hire the right people to help you.



AlessandraPollinaHeadshotAlessandra Pollina grew up in a small town in Vermont, before attending Boston University’s School of Communications. She obtained a Bachelor of Science in Communications with a focus on public relations, and a minor in anthropology. Throughout her college years, she held many internships in the PR field at some of the best agencies in Boston. These experiences were the foundation of her PR career and positioned her to launch her own company, pollina PR & marketing, a full-service boutique PR, and marketing agency, in 2012 at just 23 years old. In addition to offering full-service PR, Alessandra also loves to work one on one with business owners to train them on the tactics, strategy, and implementation best-practices for carrying out their own PR and marketing, so that they are empowered to promote their businesses and build their brands. She gets particularly fired up by working with fellow female entrepreneurs and loves to take part in spreading their messages to the world. She lives in Boston with her husband and 3-year-old son.
