NACE: Internships, Co-ops Important for 2013 Seniors

According to a new survey of students from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE), nearly two-thirds (63.2 percent) of graduating seniors from the Class of 2013 took part in an internship or cooperative education assignment during their time spent pursuing a bachelor's degree, the highest percentage since NACE began surveying the subject in 2007.

The highest previous rate was 57 percent, reported for the Class of 2008. Pay categories for the 2013 survey split nearly down the middle, with 52.2 percent reporting paid internships and 47.8 reporting unpaid internships.
