Ernst & Young: Summer interns take on graduate jobs
June 30, 2012

As Ernst & Young kicks off its 2012 Summer Internship Programme, the firm is pleased to report that 84% of students who joined last year’s summer internship scheme have taken on graduate jobs with the firm. Over the next 5 weeks, 320 university students will take on work experience placements in 17 Ernst & Young offices across the UK.
“Summer internships are a great way for students to gain valuable experience for their CV and to get ahead of the competition,” said Stephen Isherwood, head of graduate recruitment at Ernst & Young. ” Our interns will have the opportunity to develop new skills, boost their networks and improve their commercial awareness, in addition to potentially securing a job offer. They won’t be making the tea; they will be put into real life business situations.”
The professional services firm says that internships are a great opportunity for students to help set themselves apart from their peers in a competitive jobs market and is aiming to increase the percentage of interns who are offered graduate jobs to 90% this year.
