Critical information from City Internships during COVID-19

The Institute of Student Employers (ISE), for instance, reports that 68% of employers have "cancelled work experience and insight opportunities altogether" - however they would like to provide students with some cause for hope and straightforward actionable advice. Their findings do not jibe with the most pessimistic statistics students may be seeing.

Only a small fraction of their partner employers have cancelled their summer opportunities altogether. Critically, all those firms with headcounts above 5,000. Similarly, the overwhelming majority of their partner employers have committed to hosting interns virtually, either as a default or fall-back approach, this summer.

City Internships is a member of the Association of Graduate Recruiters (AGR), the National Association of Colleges & Employers (NACE), NAFSA: Association of International Educators, The Forum on Education Abroad, and the National Society on Experiential Education (NSEE).
