Spotlight on Summer Interns 2013

UR Students Gaining Real World Experience

  According to NACE Internship Survey, 39 percent of employer's entry-level hires came from their own internship programs, 67 percent of interns were offered a full-time position with their employer, and 87 percent of interns accepted a full-time job offer.

   Ninety-two percent of UR students complete at least one internship as an undergrad and credit their internship with helping to identify and achieve their career goals.
