Employers anticipate hiring 3.4 percent more interns in 2017 than they did in 2016, according to a new report from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE).
These findings from NACE’s 2017 Internship & Co-op Survey report make 2017 the first year since 2013 that employers have reported positive hiring projections for interns and full-time, entry-level hires. In recent years, employers indicated positive hiring projections for full-time hires, while they expected to either maintain or decrease their hiring levels for interns.
Also, 41 percent of respondents indicated that they would increase intern hiring in 2017, while 42 percent indicated that they would maintain hiring and 17 percent noted that they would decrease hiring.
