100 Best Internships for 2022

Published: Oct 26, 2021

Today, we’re excited to release our 100 Best Internship Program Rankings for 2022. The rankings are based on a survey of more than 11,400 current and former interns from more than 100 internship programs.

This past summer, Firsthand asked interns to rate their actual internship experiences. On a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest and 1 being the lowest, respondents were asked to rate their internship experiences in six core areas: Career Development, Compensation and Benefits, Diversity, Full-Time Employment Prospects, Interview Process, and Quality of Life.

To determine an overall score for each program, the ratings were assigned relative weights based on what interns told us they value most in an internship. The overall scores are based on the following weighted formula: 30 percent career development, 20 percent employment prospects, 20 percent quality of life, 20 percent compensation, 5 percent diversity, and 5 percent interview process.
