For students looking for a foot in the door of an employer, there’s more evidence that taking part in an internship could be the answer.

Employers responding to NACE’s 2011 Internship & Co-op Survey reported that an average 39.1 percent of their entry-level hires from the Class of 2010 came from their own internship programs. In addition, they reported converting, on average, nearly 58 percent of their interns into full-time hires.
