Intersecting Minds: Education, Business and Technology at the North Carolina State Jenkins Graduate School of Management

Summer Internship Crunch | February 24, 2009

CNN publishes a story this afternoon that many of us here in graduate school could write in our sleep: For students, summer jobs are harder to come by. Well first of all, Duh. Of course summer jobs are harder to come by, the economy is in an awful recession and jobs are being slashed across the board.

However, the article does go on to note that while the banking industry and MBA’s in particular have been hit hard by the downturn, other graduate students are also feeling the burn: “At the law school, “everybody is scrambling,” according to Littman. “The phone has been ringing a lot from people who are worried.”

Everyone is feeling the crunch right now.
