Internships play a critical role in developing an organization’s future talent pools, but the pandemic had a significant impact on 2020 intern programs. Some were completely cancelled, while others were redesigned for a virtual platform. In our pulse survey, we explore whether Cartus clients and
prospects are delivering their 2021 internship programs virtually, what support they typically provide interns, and when and where the internships take place.
Those who completed the Cartus survey work for organizations in a variety of industries, including energy, consumer goods, manufacturing, pharmaceuticals, technology, and finance. Within the group of 38 respondents, nearly half initiate 100 or fewer interns annually, while the remainder are fairly evenly split between the 101- 250, 251- 400, and 400+ volume ranges.
