Here are some statistics and graphs about what is happening on monthly and yearly
basis regarding graduate and matriculant opportunities. Data for the years 2014
– 2018 (first week of June).
This graph shows that since 2014 the average number of internships has been decreasing
every year. Meaning that companies are not recruiting graduates as they
use to do
This graph shows that time to apply for an internship is April or September or
November. However, this does not mean that it’s not a good idea to apply during
the other months. It ONLY means that companies advertise more during those months.
Similar to the Yearly Internship Graph, this one shows that companies are advertising
less bursaries every year
This graph shows that companies advertise most of their bursaries in May or August
or October. Notice that there NO bursaries in December. So get ready to apply this
month and not wait until the end of the year.
