InternMatch, a LookSharp company, conducted one of the largest student internship surveys of all time and found that a key to getting hired is not just internship experience, but paid internships.

The survey, which received more than 9,000 student respondents, reveals several interesting statistics regarding internships. For one, paid internships are a key to gaining full-time employment after college. Students with paid internships are three times more likely to have job offers than students with unpaid internships (which can still be incredibly valuable!) 

Not only are paid internships crucial, but so is having multiple internships throughout college. Students with three or more internships are twice as likely to have a job offer than students with just one internship. Surprisingly or not, just a small number of graduates are employed. Only 16.6% of seniors received a job offer as of April 15. 

The report also reveals that, due to increasing student debt, 72.6% of students work a side job during school, which limits time and opportunities for internships.
