Internships = Better Jobs, Bigger Salaries

According to a survey done by the National Association of Colleges and Employers, in 2007 employers reported that:

  • 88.5% of new hires had internship or co-op experience
  • Candidates with internship experience were offered 6.5% higher salaries
  • 63% of employers attending the UCD Career Expo would prefer to hire students with internship experience than students without
  • Overall, U.S. employers reported plans to increase their intern hires by 9.8%

Whether you are looking for a job or applying to professional school after graduation, internships are the best way to add to your marketability or viability.  An internship can complement your resume or personal statement and add substance to your answers in interviews.  Participating in an internship can also help you clarify and define your career goals.  “Trying on” an internship can assist you in determining if you are on the right career path.
