    NACE BRIEF: The Future of Internships and Entry-Level Work

    NACE BRIEF: The Future of Internships and Entry-Level Work

    Preparing Students for the New Work Modalities

    Just a few weeks into the spring 2020 semester as the COVID-19 pandemic took hold, many employers were forced to convert their summer 2020 internship programs to a remote modality. Now, two years later, internships are no longer overwhelmingly in-person experiences; many organizations are offering full virtual programs or blending virtual and in-person for a hybrid experience.

    This brief offers insight into the modalities where interns will spend summer 2022 internships and breaks it down by industry. It also looks ahead at what this could mean for internships going forward—and the world of work, in general.

    The brief also addresses implications for the higher education and employment communities and provides steps to take to ensure the success of students, interns, and employees who engage in virtual and hybrid work environments.

    This brief is free for NACE members. Download it now at 2022 Internship & Co-op Survey Report Product Suite

    The brief also explores offer, acceptance, and conversion rates by those parameters, providing meaningful benchmarks that organizations can use to assess the effectiveness of their own program.

    It concludes with a set of recommendations that organizations can act on to connect their internship programs with their overall goals for workforce diversity.
