National Intern Day is an American holiday created by WayUp, a company dedicated to empowering early-career candidates and bridging the gap between employers and interns. The day is dedicated to recognizing and celebrating the world's future leaders. Since its start in 2017, National Intern Day has aimed to shed light on the challenges and inequalities that entry-level candidates and interns often face in the workforce. It serves as a reminder to companies of the importance of investing in diverse internship programs to foster the growth and development of their organization.
What is the meaning of an internship?
An internship is a period where individuals serve as interns, gaining valuable practical experience in their chosen field. It is a formal program designed to provide beginners with hands-on training and a chance to apply their knowledge in a real-world setting. It’s a chance for early-career individuals to kick-start their careers.
How long does an internship last?
Internship durations can vary depending on the educational institution and program requirements. At Bertling Sweden, we have had the pleasure of hosting interns from 8 weeks to 16 weeks, and occasionally for an entire year. Semester-length internships are also quite common.
