"Many employers, because of the economy, arent conducting large-scale hirings," said Peg Ferguson, assistant director of URI Career Services. "Instead, they are primarily hiring out of their internship pools. In this economic climate, we are trying to emphasize how important internships are for students as gateways into employment."
