How to Turn Your Internship Into a Full-time Job [Infographic]

Internships are now essentially mandatory to get a real-world job. Employers want to hire candidates that come with skills already in hand, ready to go from day one.

Internships – one for every year you are in college, as many experts suggest – is the best way to develop these skills. And many employers hire their current interns. Recently NACE reported that 69% of employers with 100 or more employees offered full-time jobs to their interns.

How do you become one of those interns that end up with a job offer?

This infographic from Progressive Business Publications offers some insights into how to do just that. Take a look!

  • Fascinating! I’ve done an internship or two in my time, and I’d have to say my biggest quibble was a lack of organization on the company’s part. That is to say the company was more than happy to bring interns on board, but had no clear idea of what to do with them or how to build learning experiences into the job. Having some experience under my belt becomes helpful because I now know the kinds of things I would like to get out of an internship, so I can ask the right questions and – to a certain extent – guide the process, improving everyone’s experience. So, I would suggest going into any internship with eyes and ears open, and with some idea of what you’d like to get out of it (other than a job) so you’ll at least walk away with some solid experience.

      That happens sometimes, and we’re working hard to get the word out for companies to change that.

      To your point about having experience under your belt… another point we often emphasize is that interns should never accept feeling that they are “just an intern”. Don’t settle for a crappy internship. If you’re not being utilized and you’re not learning, politely and respectfully speak up. Arrange a time to meet with your manager, outline your issues in concise details and offer solutions to how your internship could be improved. A good company will work with you to improve your experience.
