COVID has radically changed the job and education landscape with a natural flow on internships programs. With skills shortages across the country, internship programs are hot property as they provide mutual benefits for both employee and interns, along with direct access to industry talent.

If I had a dollar for every time a student asked me “will this company give me a job after my internship?” then I'd be a very rich woman.
