UK / Student interns three times more likely to get at least one definite job offer

Research shows that some 36 per cent of students completing a work experience placement had received at least one definite job offer by the Easter of their final year compared with just 11 per cent of other undergraduates.

Experts warned that work experience was “no longer an option extra” for universities and had increasingly become an essential element of preparing for the employment market.

It comes as figures showed that the number of job applications made by finalists had soared by 75 per cent in the last five years.

A major survey found that students will apply for 427,000 jobs by the end of this year, compared with just 244,000 in 2008.

The rise is being fuelled by an overall increase in the university population combined with a rise in the number of applications made by each student and a drop in the number of people going travelling after graduation.
