Internships and experience abroad

All things being equal, two factors tip the balance when it comes to hiring university graduates : internships in companies during their degree and experience abroad, either to learn languages ​​or to complete studies. These two experiences are highly valued by companies and institutions, even more than the university in which they have been studied. The data comes from the first employer survey carried out by the Agència per a la Qualitat del Sistema Universitari ( AQU ). Through interviews with heads of 1,325 companies, the work analyzes the job placement of university students, what they expect from them and what they offer them.

“I would tell a student that, as little as possible, look for internships and go abroad, the options of finding work then multiply,” said the president of the AQU, Josep Joan Moreso, during the presentation of the study this week. With the internships, experience, work habits and contacts are acquired. With stays abroad, languages ​​are improved and culture is expanded.

In terms of recruitment, 60% of the companies surveyed claim to have signed university graduates in the last five years. The sectors from which the majority of those hired come are Economy, Business Administration and Management (ADE) and Business, Engineering and Information and Communication Technologies.

Having an MBA abroad undoubtedly increases your chance of landing a high-paying job. This experience you gain from traveling and studying an MBA abroad is an invaluable addition that companies know how to reward.
