Internships are Valuable to Students
The opportunity to learn applicable skills and gain valuable professional experience is vital to Binghamton University students. Employers can play a crucial role in the development of students by mentoring them and sharing vital knowledge about what is necessary to succeed in life after college. Nearly all the employers who participated in the 2015 National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) Job Outlook survey said they prefer to hire candidates with work experience, and 60% said they prefer to hire candidates who have had an internship.
Mentoring these students can be one of your organization's many important legacies!
