interns

 

72% of interns apply to complete an internship because of opportunities for future graduate employment.

(AAGE, 2018)

What are you doing to ensure your internship program stands out from the crowd?

When employers support internships with work readiness skills development, two things become possible:

Firstly, your employer brand on campus is strengthened – you’re seen as an employer that truly cares and invests in their future graduates.

Secondly, the skills development of your future graduate pipeline is accelerated – increasing the speed to value of those candidates who convert to graduates. Work Readiness Skills are the transferrable skills needed to increase employability and integrate into a workplace faster.
