Business Internships

Why are Internships Important?

You may have the best grades. A long list of student activities. And amazing references from professors. But when you start looking for a job, you find that you are sending out tons of resumes, and getting no calls. What is the problem? You are missing a key component in making you an attractive candidate - an internship.

According to a recent survey done by and reported in Forbes Magazine, "69% of companies with 100 or more employees offered full-time jobs to their interns in 2012" and even better news, "Fifty-three percent of the surveyed employers said they expect to hire more interns in 2013 than they did in 2012..." Companies often treat internships as extended interviews and even if you are not ultimately hired, the "real world" experience is invaluable in addition to adding experience to your resume.
