Spotlight on Summer Interns 2014

Spotlight on Summer Interns 2014

According to a recent survey published by the National Association of Colleges and Employers,  39 percent of entry-level hires come from an employer's own internship program;  67 percent of interns were offered a full-time position with their employer, and 87 percent of interns accepted a full-time job offer.

At the University of Rochester, 93 percent of students complete at least one internship as an undergraduate and almost 40 percent complete two or more. In our own annual survey of graduating seniors a majority of our students credit their internship experiences as a "highly influential" factor in helping them identify and achieve their career goals.
