From Inside Higher Ed: “The National Association of Colleges and Employers, a nonprofit for college career services, recruiting practitioners and others who wish to hire the college educated, found that about 22 percent of employers revoked internships in April 2020. Additionally, NACE found 41 percent of employers delayed internship start dates in May 2020, thus reducing the total length of internships, which traditionally run 10 to 12 weeks. … To help compensate for the canceled, delayed and virtual internships, institutions are building their alumni networks and creating new programs to better connect students with employers.”
