Did you know? “A survey by the National Association of Colleges and Employers indicates that the starting salary for college graduates who completed a paid internship and were employed in a private, for-profit company was $53,521, while those who didn’t complete an internship started with an average of only $38,572. The same study found that 72.2% of college graduates with internship experience got a job offer, in contrast to 36.5% for those who didn’t complete one. These numbers show that pursuing an internship during your college years can add a competitive edge on your side, increasing your opportunity to get a well-paying job after graduation.” https://collegestats.org/articles/college-internships/ This session is open to all current Brookdale students and is highly recommended for second-semester students.
