= Intern Tasks =

Here's a basic list of tasks that we can get an intern to do. The interns are here to help out DoES Liverpool but while here they may have time to help members with projects or work. Please discuss this with an organiser before asking interns to work on your own projects, but in general we really support our members both helping out with mentoring, and getting benefit from the work of the interns.

Obviously, if you plan to commandeer an intern to work exclusively on your own project for a longer period, that's also a possibility, but it might be appropriate for you to cover the cost of their desk for the period: again, please talk it through with the organisers.
