MANILA, PHILIPPINES — In today’s competitive job market, experience weighs just as much as academic achievements when securing a job. While academic achievements lay the foundation for you to land a desirable career, having real-world experience is the cornerstone of professional success. Based on a survey conducted by Jobstreet.com, 80% of hiring managers prefer to discuss internships during interviews as opposed to focusing on academic grades and extracurricular activities. Other studies have also shown that students who have interned before are 15% less likely to be unemployed and typically earn 6% more than students who did not.
This is why choosing the right internship is a crucial decision that every graduating student has to make. Internships present students with an avenue to gain new skills, create connections, and be given training and mentorship by industry professionals in their chosen field or industry.
