That’s not just me saying that, although I agree. It’s 305 career center professionals at 283 colleges and universities across the country. They all responded to a survey from our client, in the 2010 Internships.com Spring Survey of Career Center Professionals.
A few major findings of the survey:
- 98 % of respondents agree or strongly agree that employers favor students who have had an internship experience” over their peers who have not had an internship while in college; and
- 66% of the respondents say that internship postings are up over the last year.
There are opportunities out there, it’s up to students to find them and sometimes make them.
