                  The 2022 AAGE Intern Survey is based on research conducted by the AAGE, with over 1,600 responses from students across 106 organisations who have completed an internship during the past 12 months.
                   
                  The survey provides the latest market information on:

                  - Promotions and sources of information used by interns
                  - Satisfaction levels
                  - Ratings of internships and employers.

                  Year after year, employers have found the survey to be an invaluable resource, allowing them to benchmark themselves against market best practice and plan their upcoming campaigns.
