Employment success of higher education graduates entering the workforce through internships

Verfügbarkeit

Abstract

"The issue of graduates from higher education institutions who enter the world of work via internships has been in the core of discourses and debates among the media, politicians and higher education institutions in Germany. Internships in Germany have increasingly extended beyond higher education studies and have become for higher education graduates a way of entry into the labour market. Indicative of this development is the concept of the so-called 'internship generation'. The discourses in the public have been about a generation of highly educated graduates who fail to find regular employment after their studies and find themselves in a situation of continuous internships with no career prospects and being exploited instead of developing a career path. (...) The research study intends to examine the employment success by focusing on four fields of study - humanities and social sciences, economics, mathematics and natural sciences and engineering - to identify whether there is the same picture in all fields of study or whether there are differences."
