Oh, The Places You’ll Go: The Map to Better Internships [Infographic]

Feeling lost when it comes to creating an amazing internship program? Good news! There’s no need to pull over and ask a stranger for directions because InternMatch knows the way. Our quarterly report, that we turned into a aesthetically pleasing infographic, will serve as your guide to understanding exactly what it is that students want to get out of their internships. My personal favorites are as follows:

  • 47% of student-interns want access to the company’s executives and mentorship.
  • The top industries for paid internships are Government and Banking.
  • Forget the pantry because less than 8% of interns are interested in free food.
