Most Prestigious Internships

Vault asked thousands of current and former interns which employers have the most prestigious internships. Vault’s Most Prestigious Internships represent the employers whose internships were rated highest in prestige.

  • Survey Methodology

    In 2018, Vault invited more than 400 organizations to distribute our survey to current and former interns. We received responses from more than 13,000 interns. In addition to asking respondents to rate and review their own internship experiences for our 2019 Best Internships Rankings, we asked interns 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.

    The Most Prestigious Internships represent the employers whose internships were rated highest in prestige by survey respondents.
