How Interns Can Help Your Business

Internships are becoming a prerequisite for entry into the workforce. As a result, many talented individuals are willing to trade their energy and effort for valuable experience. For business owners, this means you can access top talent for your company. Being involved in an internship program does require some planning and development. However, the end results are worth it. Here are some ways that interns can help your business. 

Streamline Your Hiring Process

Employee turnover is often one of the most costly aspects of running a business. It can cost businesses huge amounts of time and money to replace an employee that turned out to be a bad fit for either the job or the company culture. On many occasions, the interview process is simply not enough to give you an insight into how the employee would perform on the job. With an intern, you can turn the internship into an extended interview. It gives you an opportunity to cultivate a working relationship that can turn into a permanent position.

Vision Correcting Display May Make Reading Glasses Obsolete

Reading glasses may soon become a thing of the past. That is, if researchers from MIT and Microsoft have anything to say about it. New technology is currently being developed that can adjust an image on a display so that the user can see it without using corrective lenses. This display technology represents a new wave of devices that can be personalized to an extreme level. Here’s a closer look at the development of this groundbreaking technology.

How it works

The technology uses a light filter (set in the front of the display) and specialized algorithms to change an image based on the user’s eyeglass prescription. The algorithm transforms the light from each individual pixel on the display. When fed through a tiny hole in the plastic filter, the light rays arrive at the retina in a way that allows for the creation of a sharp image. Essentially, it anticipates how your eyes will naturally distort the onscreen image according to the corrective prescription, and then makes adjustments to deliver a sharp image.

What Can a CPA Do for a Small Business?

Certified Public Accountants (CPAs) can provide a variety of services to their clients. From monthly financial reviews and yearly tax preparation to business coaching, a good accountant can navigate the ins and outs of your books and help you remain profitable. Finding the right person for the job is a matter of determining your needs, vetting your potential hire, and making sure that the requirements and fees are communicated clearly.

What Do You Need?

Most outside firms and individual accountants do not handle day-to-day transactions or other in-house operations. Payroll, cash management, bank reconciliation and general account ledgers are other examples of items usually handled by your own business. Analysis, problem-solving, tax return and financial statement preparation, and other consulting work are all within the scope of an outside firm or CPA.
