The statistics are clear: over 70% of companies that provide internships also hire new staff from their intern pools. Yet many college students do not know this, nor have they obtained internships before. They often fall behind and are missing this valuable experience on their resume when they search for full-time employment after college.
The Compass solution is designed to help students understand the importance of internships and how to find and obtain them. This service provides a clear, structured path to finding and preparing for internships, including how to stand out among the candidates and secure an offer.
When you enroll your student in Compass, they will benefit from a proven, how-to support system for every step of the internship process. We even have FREE resources to benefit all students!
When you enroll your student in Compass, they will receive clear direction — what to do, when to do it and how to get it done. Instead of confusion and stress, your student will benefit from a guided, structured path to internship success, including video tutorials, checklists, assessments, best-in-class internship database with industry contacts, live events, and as an option, personal coaching.
We also provide parent-focused resources, so you know what to expect during this process. Our free Basecamp resources include a valuable e-book and parent-only events, highly recommended by previous parents.
