74 percent of students miss out on internships advertised in the first semester


Employment4students (E4S) has revealed that thousands of students will miss out on internships with companies that solely advertise in the autumn semester.

Based on five years of information gathering, E4S states that the majority of internship-related searches typically occur in the spring semester, missing out on internships available from September to December.

46 percent of internship-related searches take place between January and April, typically following a lull in December where only 6.7 percent of overall internship searches are made.
