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."
