Hi All. Want to understand a situation - I have had an intern in my office working with us for the past 4 months. His internship will be over by October. But considering his performance we have decided to give him an offer. So in that case, should we directly give him the confirmation after the completion of his internship period or after the internship he should be taken on probation period as well. (As per our company norms a candidate is on a probation period of 6 months).

Hi Sanjana,
What you are describing is usually addre3ssed by what's known as PPO (Preplacement offer).
Your organization, just like the regular recruitment process, needs to take the intern into the regular pipeline through this offer, subject to the intern successfully completing his degree/PG course.

Once he accepts your offer, he goes back to his institute to complete the course requirements. During this time, if he is a local person, he may continue to visit your organization in a way that does not violate his institute's requirement.

Also, if his institute has a placement office, it needs to be notified about you making the PPO and the student accepting it. You will then be guided through the institute's placement process.

Once his course is complete and he meets the necessary academic / other criteria, if he has accepted the PPO, then from the commonly agreed date he can start his employment.

As for the probation period, it may be in the organization's interest to retain the provision of probation even if you are offering a PPO to the intern after observing his performance. The candidate may be made permanent earlier, depending on how well he meets the performance milestones.

We hope this helps.
Let us know if you have any follow-up questions.

Best wishes,
