What You Need To Know To Hire Interns

You want to recruit amazing talent with potential, but you don’t know where to start. This is the situation with many companies that want to hire interns. Many companies think internships are for taking out the trash and fetching coffee. Problem is, you won’t be recruiting great talent that you could potentially hire full time, if it’s menial work. Interns are a valuable asset and can provide worthwhile insight. Here’s what you need to know to hire interns:

Be strategic—Before bringing new interns onto the team, make sure to have a program in place. Create designated roles and duties for the interns so that they make the most of their time. You may want to create a long-term project with strict deadlines for the interns.

Interview well—Interns need to impress you and live up to their resume, but you also need to impress them. Explain your company culture and why they should come work for you. What perks do you offer interns? Also, be forthcoming about the exact position. Don’t tell the potential intern they’ll have responsibility if, in reality, they’ll just be taking coffee orders.

Be considerate—Lastly, the most important thing a company can offer an intern is flexibility. More often than not, interns are balancing school, a part-time job and campus activities on top of an internship. Be considerate with their time and offer less hours around testing weeks.

Welcome to Lithtex Printing!

The art of printing is not in the press. Or fancy die cuts, or bindery, either. Instead, it’s using printing to make business happen. At Lithtex, printing is about more than just ink and paper - it’s about creating business solutions, and getting results.

Lithtex Printing Solutions was founded in 1973 in Beaverton, Oregon by Les Davis. Originally established as a quick-print shop, we quickly became known as a leading local resource for the fast-turnaround printing needs of local businesses.

Over the years our reputation for top-notch work grew, so did the company. As other printers struggled to compete in a changing marketplace, We acquired more equipment, employees and clients, to become among the largest local printing companies.

Lithtex has always been committed to keeping up with the latest printing technology. As the local business climate changed in the late 1990’s, client budgets tightened, demand for return on investment rose, and technology quickly advanced. Foreseeing a change in the printing needs of businesses large and small, Lithtex evolved by adding digital equipment to its extensive offset printing capabilities to support the emerging need for short-run quality printing—thereby establishing itself as the business-solution driven printing company.

In 2001, we expanded operations and built a 50,000 square foot state-of-the-art printing facility. Today, that facility is Lithtex’s headquarters for developing business solutions for its clients.

In 2010 we were rewarded Hillsboro's "Business of the Year" by the Hillsboro Chamber of Commerce. a recognition that we are extremely proud of.

Today, Lithtex continues to be a recognized leader of solution-oriented printing.
