Professional Tip Block
In 2018, NACE's Internship & Co-Op Survey showed that 59% of employers offered their interns a full-time position. So if you enjoy your internship experience and would like for it to turn into a full time job, let the company know. Keep in mind that an internship is what you make of it. It may not always lead to a job offer but it will provide you with the skills, experience and connections you need to get one.
