How is the “Best Internship Programs in 2024” ranking determined?

The ranking is based on your answers from the nomination form, where a scoring will be calculated (70% weight) and alongside the votes from the candidates (30% weight). The only information taken into consideration is the one provided by the employer in the nomination form, so all submissions must be completed with as much facts as possible. Here are the areas that the internship has to reach for a higher score:

  • o Education

  • o Career development

  • o Benefits

The nomination form and the judging are based on the preferences, needs and career perspectives of the Gen Z as analyzed in the "GENERATION Z BEHAVIOR ON THE ROMANIAN LABOR MARKET IN 2023" study by Catalyst Solutions.
