Interns

Employers searching for top talent among college-educated, entry-level employees look to interns to build their pipeline of job-ready workers. Fifty-one percent of employers hire interns to find the best fit for their companies, and 81% report that new hires with relevant internship experience are better prepared workers than those without internships.
