7 Fall Internships Your Students Will Thank You For

Even though classes are still weeks away, there’s no denying that fall recruitment is heating up. Hundreds of employers are already targeting students for the highest paying and most prestigious fall jobs and internships.

We recently conducted the WayUp Student Debt Survey and we found that at least 80% of students work in some capacity during the school year. Given that the vast majority of your students are working 10+ hours a week and struggling to make ends meet, it’s critical to help them find meaningful opportunities to not only make college more affordable, but act as killer resume builder to help them compete longer term in a crowded job market. Plus, many students who need money don’t qualify for work study and are left find employment opportunities on their own.

Hundreds of top employers have already opened their fall internships, and we’re here to highlight our top picks to ensure your students don’t miss out on these amazing opportunities!
