How did it get to be November? That's what we've been asking ourselves the last few days. We're probably not the only ones taking a second glance at the calendar.
The end of the year is in sight, which means that on top of running day to day operations, we need to get organized to ensure a solid finish to 2009.
In the next few issues of the Urban Interns Employer Report - a free resource focused on effectively leveraging part-time staff and interns - we'll highlight ways to utilize Urban Interns to help tackle these year-end to-do's.Project #1: Client Communication.Ready to find quality part-time help or interns?

Are you planning on reachining out to your clients, contacts or supporters in the next two months to send holiday greetings? Might seem like a small task, provided that you've been diligent all year about updating your contact lists. For the 99.9 percent of us that are still looking at a stack of business cards in a pile at the side of our desk, now is the time to get this sorted out. Mid-December is a bit too late.
An Urban Intern can help you:
- sort through and organize your contacts
- research options for holiday greetings (printed, electronic, custom)
- send out your note, once the above has been accomplished.
And remember, whether long-term or short-term, virtual or in-person, college student or seasoned professional, paid or unpaid -- you define your needs, we provide access to connections. WELCOME TO THE FUTURE OF HIRING!
