FYI Tidbits // Survey say about Internships and getting jobs after graduating college
Approximately 60 percent of 2012 college graduates who took part in paid internships received at least one job offer, according to results of a new study by the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
An internship may give you some experience that will help you later in your approach to finding a job but does not necessarily give you an edge in the eyes of employers. NACE found that just one percent more of interns got job offers than did new college graduates with no internship experience.
About the 2012 Student Survey:
Each year, NACE surveys college students on career-, employment-, and job-search related issues. NACE’s 2012 Student Survey was conducted mid-January through April 30, 2012. Nearly 48,000 college students nationwide, including 15,715 seniors at the bachelor’s degree level, took part in the survey.
