Internship: The New Interview

Here's a link from Forbes, one of the biggest names in All Things Money. The best route to a permanent job may well be an internship--think of it as an extended interview. 

Some eye-catching quantifiable tidbits:
  • "69% of companies with 100 or more employees offered full-time jobs to their interns in 2012."
  • "You have a 7 in 10 chance of being hired by the company you interned with."
  • "Fifty-three percent of the surveyed employers said they expect to hire more interns in 2013 than they did in 2012."
Bonus: at the bottom of the linked article, you'll find a list of the highest-paying internships nationwide. 
If you haven't already started planning what you'll do during summer 2013, here is some serious food for thought.
