Students start careers

(NAPS)-Many internships may be difficult to get but they're an increasingly effective route to a good job.
Here's why: On average, 62 percent of college graduates who had paid internships were offered full-time jobs. Fully three-quarters of the students who got internships through one organization, however, received job offers.
The nation's largest nonprofit resource for salaried corporate internships helps prepare highly qualified college students for corporate and community leadership.
So far, INROADS has placed students in over 125,000 paid internships and graduated over 25,000 into full-time professional and managerial positions, with over 1,000 corporate partners, many in the Fortune 500. In fact, INROADS graduates had a conversion rate of 65 percent from internship to full-time employment with an INROADS Corporate Partner, while the national average graduate conversion rate is only 57.7 percent.
