There’s perhaps no more important aspect to an internship than training and mentoring. The level of learning, coaching, and mentoring you receive during an internship can make a monumental difference when it comes to launching your career post-graduation. Which makes our new ranking of the 30 Best Internship Programs for Training & Mentoring one of our most important, and we’re excited to be able to share it with you today.
This new ranking is based on a survey of more than 11,400 current and former interns from more than 100 internship programs. This past summer, we asked interns to rate their internship experiences in numerous areas, including training and mentoring. Interns were asked to rate their satisfaction with their programs’ training and mentoring efforts on a scale of 1 to 10, where 1 means “completely unsatisfied” and 10 means “completely satisfied.” Firsthand then averaged each program’s scores and ranked the programs accordingly.

“New hire’s remorse”—at least under this name—is a recent phenomenon that we broached last week. Also called “shift shock,” it arises when an employee regrets taking a job because it isn’t the right fit or is completely different from what was expected.
