Internship opportunities have jumped almost a third in recent weeks according to Broadbean Technology who analysed data from 36,000 job sites.
Overall vacancies have fallen by 11% whilst internships are up by 30%.
Reportedly thanks to Credit Suisse, Deutsche Bank, Goldman Sachs, JPMorgan, Morgan Stanley and UBS, hundreds of students will be employed this summer in career enhancing roles. This is quite a different picture to ISE research which revealed, worryingly, that more than a quarter of businesses are reducing the number of graduates they recruit this year. I prefer Broadbean's findings!
Most often these internships will be run virtually. A challenge for any employer but not one that cannot be overcome. If you didn't see it yesterday, here's a suggestion of 8 ways you can make virtual internships run smoothly.
Despite the on-going economic crisis, it’s encouraging to see businesses still investing in future talent through virtual internships as it will be these individuals who will help companies succeed in the future when the impact of Covid-19 has lessened.
