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.
