Framing Internships from an Employers' Perspective: Length, Number, and Relevancy. CERI Research Brief 6-2013
Gardner, Phil
Collegiate Employment Research Institute
Over the past decade internships have become an essential talent management strategy for organizations big and small. The Collegiate Employment Research Institute (CERI) has tracked the role of internships, finding that internships have eclipsed on-­campus interviewing in bringing organizations to college campuses (­-content/uploads/2010/01/Career-­-Fairs.pdf). To capture an overview of factors that shape an organization's internship program, a series of questions were included in Michigan State University's (MSU's) annual Recruiting Trends survey, conducted by CERI. The topics included purpose of internships in their organization, total length of pre-­professional experience expected, preferred length of an internship experience, and number of internships expected, for example. Nearly 2000 employer representatives completed these questions. This brief highlights the results of the survey.
