Abstract

In the past two decades, education-to-work transitions for young people
have become more turbulent and uncertain. The role of work experience and,
more specifically, internships during higher education (HE) in facilitating
access to work and enhancing labour-market outcomes has been debated in
academic and policy literature.2 For HE students, internships are widely considered
a way of accessing work experience and on-the-job training, and are
assumed to enhance their labour-market outcomes, in particular at the early
career stage.
