According to Inspiring Interns, 65% of internships lead to full-time jobs after graduation. High Fliers’ “Graduate Market in 2014” says that “recruiters have confirmed that a record 37% of this year’s entry-level positions are expected to be filled by graduates who have already worked for their organisations”. Whatever the figure, we all know how important work experience is – particularly if you can secure it in the company you want to work in after you graduate!
