Career Edge Organization founded National Internship Awareness Month in 2017. So every April we celebrate the benefits of internships for both employers and students. Think of it as a joint effort to produce tomorrow’s great talent. While internships often get a bad reputation as unpaid busywork, they’re still a great way for young professionals to start their careers through meaningful experience.
They’re also on the rise: About 62% of the class of 2017 reported doing at least one internship as compared to just 17% of the class of 1992. Cheers to you, interns!
