While most internships will provide students with “observational experience”, administrative activities or low-end work (like telemarketing or mailing), The National Association of Local Businesses (NAOLB) provides extensive training, guidance and processes and allows our interns to interact with actual business owners as prospects and customers. Initial Training is completed in about 2 hours, online via Zoom, with online back office and live support. Training is continuous for our interns, with weekly meeting, daily conversation and Company meetings to enhance the experience.
Whether an intern earns $1000 or $20,000 over the course of the school year, the RESUME’ experience will jump off the page, when starting a career, upon graduation. While most students get a “job” and attempt to pass it off as “experience” (e.g. Waitresses don’t really “sell” menu items and administration work where one is assigned projects doesn’t really show any real initiative in business.)
The intern that can demonstrate that they can engage and interact with business owners, professionally present themselves or communicate concepts and ideas, attend professional trainings, has documented skills and the confidence that comes from this experience, always has the attention of recruiters and is sought after by every company. Interns with this level of experience have a fast track to getting the career positions they want in the future, in ANY Industry!!!
Unlike many internships, we don’t compensate interns on an “hourly” basis, if they can get all their work done in minimal time… GREAT! We compensate our interns on “PRODUCTIVITY” and performance free of politics and favoritism.
Compensation is paid for as long as the intern is enrolled in college. You read that correctly… we pay RESIDUAL income to our interns, while they are enrolled in school, based on all the revenue generated from the customers they enrolled in NAOLB. Membership for the business owners is FREE… when they purchase a product or service, at any time, our interns receive a commission on that sale, for as long as the customer is using the services, and the intern is enrolled in college. If the intern graduates and becomes a full-time employee with NAOLB, their residual income will continue for as long as they are with the company.
This is an internship (while on break or part time while in school) that can be accredited by any college, depending on the requirements of the institution. The compensation program continues to pay the intern, via direct deposit, when classes resume, or summer after summer. Full or Part-time, either way… the RESIDUAL income far outweighs the effort during the summer or break periods.
We encourage interns to have an additional “part time” job, during the summer, “after 4 pm”, to provide them with some summer “pocket cash” (waitressing, uber, pizza delivery, etc.), while gaining the experience that comes from working with NAOLB. As the intern enrolls more FREE members into the Association, the customers will generate income that will be paid going forward. For most students, we know the EXPERIENCE will ALWAYS have greater “value” than the income.
To Apply, go to www.NAOLBinterns.com and complete the application online. If qualified, you will be scheduled for a Zoom Interview, with the local manager and if accepted, scheduled for the next training (usually within a week). Be sure to mention the person that referred you for expedited processing.
Base Pay / Minimum profit is calculated based on the following:
- Compensation is based on total income over the “trailing” 12 months.
- After the completion of the ten (10) Qualified Presentations, all sales generated (including those that close up to
30 days following the 10th Qualified Presentation is completed) will be accounted for and calculated based on the 12 trailing months.
- If the total commissions earned, projected over the 12 trailing months, is greater than amount per
Presentation on the minimum profit program , the Intern will keep the commissions earned and receive all subsequent residual commissions for the life of the clients they enrolled for as long as they are in college, including the summer after graduation.
- If the total commissions earned from 10 Qualified Presentations completed are “less than” the minimum profit
program amount, Company will pay the difference (or shortfall amount) to equal the base pay per qualified presentation, to be paid out over the 12 trailing months.
- e.g. if after 10 Qualified Presentations, the Intern earns $50 in commissions per month, the total commissions would be $600, or $60 per presentation.
- e.g. if after 10 Qualified Presentations, the Intern earn $10 in commission per month, or $120 in total income, the company would calculate the “short fall” and add that amount to the monthly payments, for the next 12 months, to equal the minimum profit per presentation for that position level.
