But the internship landscape is changing and trends can change, so your recruiting and hiring methods need to adapt in order to snare the best talent out there. Do you know when students start looking for internship opportunities, what channels they’re frequenting the most, and what kind of perks they find most enticing? If you don’t, you’re unlikely to land great talent.

Here’s an infographic from online intern matching platform InternMatch that shares the current state of the internship in the United States. Now go forth and hire.
