Now that summer is finally here, what are you going to do with your free-time? While the leisurely options are enticing, new research from the National Association of Colleges and Employers (NACE) suggests that interning can have huge payoffs in terms of immediate pay and long-term career opportunities. Our latest infographic looks at the ROI of summer internships.
Even if you don’t have an internship this summer, you can still brush up your skill set to help you appeal to future employers by taking Course Hero’s free courses on entrepreneurship, business and web programming. Through the end of this week, we’re even offering individuals who complete our Entrepreneurship Path the chance to submit a business plan and compete to pitch the idea to angel investment firm, SV Angel. The winner will receive $5,000 to turn his or her business into a reality. Don’t worry—if the June 30th deadline doesn’t give you enough time to complete the course, we will be holding a similar business plan competition each quarter, so get a head start by embarking on the Entrepreneurship Path today. How’s that for Real World Rewards?
