The Power of an Internship

Posted by Levine Communications Office on June 13, 2011

The individual stories are familiar. The chemistry major tending bar. The classics major answering phones. The Italian studies major sweeping aisles at Wal-Mart.

Evidence is emerging that the damage wrought by the sour economy is more widespread than just a few careers led astray or postponed. Even for college graduates, the people who are most protected from the slings and arrows of recession, the outlook is rather bleak.

Employment rates for new college graduates have fallen sharply in the last two years, as have starting salaries for those who can find work. What’s more, only half of the jobs landed by these new graduates even require a degree, reviving the debates about whether higher education is “worth it” after all.

What is NOT in debate is the power of an internship in helping get a job.

The internship program has been one of Hollywood’s most successful and demanding internship programs over the last 28 years.

Approximately 40% of our current staff began as interns.
