Ernst & Young plans to hire 25% more new graduates this year than last, so the professional services firm has upped its game when it comes to internships.
To reach the 5,000 students it hopes to recruit this year, the New York-based organization launched a Global Student Exchange Program to offer overseas assignments to select summer interns. Internships start at U.S. office locations, and then participants spend four weeks abroad at another Ernst & Young office in one of 140 countries. Students then return and complete their internships at their U.S. home office.
Another program, a 2½-day Emerging Leaders Summit for college students who have demonstratedpotential through their academic and personal lives, includes students in presentations, interactive case studies and breakout sessions on topics such as ethics and transparency and diversity.
The firm’s 15-year-old International Intern Leadership Conference for 1,900 interns from 24 countries lets students network with industry leaders and other professionals and take classes.
