Project

All kinds of different of internships are offered. However, there is no information on which branches and departments have the most and least interns. There is also no reliable data on demographic and individual differences among interns in Switzerland.

Therefore, this initiative aims at transparency by examining arguments from the perspective of employees and employers. For example, a film provides insights into the experiences of a specific subgroup of interns. A paper questions responsibility and resources as well as individual career development and regional economic development.
