The Intern & Recent Graduates Pay Rates & Practices Survey, published in May of 2018, reports data from 101 organizations regarding their internship practices and pay rates.

  • Recent graduate compensation

Some highlighted key findings from the survey include:

  • Setting formal programming is the challenge, not the interns
