5. Domain Knowledge - Does the applicant have any knowledge of your business? This is at least as important as programming skills.

A six month internship is pretty short. An up-front list of projects to attack will be helpful. This could/should include training activities and homework like reading Learning Perl.

My internship(1973) was so much different than today. I came in with Data General assembly language experience which comes with bit level hardware knowledge. "Kids" today learn products.

    «…Domain Knowledge…»

    Probably very important. Many years ago my employer put me in an «airline environment». In this years there was only one german airline. I needed about 1/2 year to learn a little bit of their technical language. It was pain in the ass. And to be honest: I felt lost. And by the way, I am of the opinion that Python was only invented to be teached easy. Best regards, Karl

      Karl, I agree totally. I had to quickly learn the language of wastewater treatment plants in order to write a Fortran code to suggest operating changes based on the latest lab results. This included learning the GE Timesharing system. Other projects required picking up Honeywell DDP-516 assembly language.
