Research on employers motives and barriers to providing internships

Findings:

  • Larger firms, and firms with progressive HR policies are more likely to host interns
  • Most important motivation for participating firms: philanthropy
  • Most important motivation for non-participating firms: bottom-line
  • The field lacks a strong conceptualization of what an internship should provide for a student
  • Implications for policy:
  • Reducing cost to employers and facilitating participation
  • Need good data and arguments to support the claim that participation is in the interest of the firm
  • Create quality measures for internship experiences, for quality control and continuous improvement

  • Over 25 years, consistently provided 1800-2200 internships annually
  • Does not demand too much of employers– educational role played by the schools courses and seminars.
  • Staff at school have bottom-line emphasis when working with employers.
  • State policies on financial aid as well as internal policies on credits have been threats to the success of the program
  • More attention must be paid to measuring quality
