Each year the UW Office of Educational Assessment surveys alumni 6 months after degree completion. 2,215 undergraduate degree recipients from 2015-2016 responded to the most recent survey. Here are some interesting internship data points:
- 57% of respondents completed at least one internship
- Recent graduates reported that the skills gained from their internships were important to their current jobs
- Internship participation was statistically related to being employed
- Among those employed, those who did an internship were significantly more likely to be working in a “career-related” position
