Strada’s newest report, “Building Better Internships,” looks at the latest findings from the National Survey of College Internships, a survey developed by the University of Wisconsin-Madison’s Center for Research on College-Workforce Transitions. The survey, now administered in partnership with Strada, examines the reasons students seek internships, common barriers they face in securing internships, the overall quality of the experience, and connections to career goals.

The report also offers recommendations to educational institutions, employers, and researchers for understanding and improving the internship experience. The new report highlights the 2023 NSCI findings from third- and fourth-year students attending four-year institutions. Those interested in additional 2023 findings can also link to a complete technical appendix.
