Employers plan to hire 1.3 percent more bachelor’s degree-level interns and 3.3 percent more students at the bachelor’s degree-level for co-ops in 2014, according to results of NACE’s 2014 Internship & Co-op Survey.
Nearly 97 percent of employers plan to hire interns and/or co-ops during 2014. Although this percentage is unchanged from previous years, these employers, overall, expect to hire 3.4 percent fewer interns and 4.4 percent more co-ops in 2014. (See Figure 1.)
For interns, the projected decrease applies to associate, master’s, and doctoral degree-level students. (See Figure 2.)
Meanwhile, employers hiring for co-ops indicated that they will hire the same number of students at the associate level, and more students at all other degree levels. (See Figure 3.)
NACE’s 2014 Internship & Co-op Survey was conducted from November 18, 2013, through January 24, 2014. The survey was sent to 1,116 NACE employer members: 264, or 23.7 percent, took part. The survey report is available at www.naceweb.org/surveys/internship-co-op.aspx.
