Carrie L. Shandra

Assistant Professor of Sociology, SUNY–Stony Brook University

Shandra will undertake a comprehensive study of internships, which are now a common employment experience for younger workers. Drawing from surveys, interviews, and a longitudinal dataset of online job and internship postings, she will provide a descriptive account of the internship market. She will examine employers’ perspectives and practices on internships, study which groups are more likely to take internships and what kinds of internships they select, and evaluate interns’ labor market outcomes.
