Doing an internship is an important step towards getting that first job:

  • Employers made full-time offers to 56.5 percent of their interns!
  • Respondents who hired interns/co-op students from their own programs retained 88.9 percent of these hires after one year.  And, for those hires with no internship/co-op experience at all, slightly less than 80 percent were retained.
