2018 Most Prestigious Internships



By Joyce Huber

In 2017, Vault, an online company that provides rankings, ratings and reviews on companies, invited more than 400 organizations to distribute a survey to current and former interns. Responses were received from more than 12,000 interns. In addition to asking respondents to rate and review their own internship experiences for the 2018 Best Internships Rankings, interns were asked to rate the prestige of other employers to determine which internships are the most desirable.

Survey respondents were presented with a list of top companies and, on a scale of 1 to 10, with 10 being the highest (“It’s a dream job!”) and 1 being the lowest (“No one wants to work there”), they were asked to rate each company on how prestigious its internship is. Interns were asked to rate only the companies with whose reputations they are familiar. Vault averaged the rating for each employer and then ranked the companies in order, starting with the highest score as No. 1, down to No. 50.
