How important is an internship for your career path
We are often asked whether an internship isÂ valuable and if it makes a difference to future employability and for your career path. We know that of course it does and we have as well a proof which come from an interesting research.
In 2016, no long time ago, the Association of Gradate Recruiters reveals that the internships provide the key to employee retention.
â€œRetention and performance are two of the main reasons why we run internships. Candidates who have previously been interns are more likely to stay with us longer as theyâ€™ve made a conscious decision to join an organisation they already know. They join with an existing network in place, and are also more likely to be high performers as theyâ€™ve already developed some of the skills weâ€™re looking for in new graduate recruits.â€
TheÂ report is outlining exactly what a previous intern, or apprentice, can do for your business.
Likewise for students, it shows how important it is for you to take up the opportunity of anÂ internship at a business before going into full time work.
