Adamed, Agros-Nowa, Software Mind and ING Bank Śląski are a few examples of Polish companies which have started offering paid programs for student-interns, Dziennik Gazeta Prawna reports.
According to recruitment agencies, the number of offers for paid internships has increased by 50-60 percent since last year. Interestingly, most companies offer their interns good salaries, from zł.1,400 to up to zł.4,000 per month. The trend may be attributed to a shortage of well-qualified students.
The number of young people who began college last year was smaller than in previous years. The number of students in Poland may even decrease by up to 40 percent by 2020, DGP writes.
"In coming years companies will be competing for the best and brightest students," Marta Piasecka, head of the career department at the University of Warsaw, told the newspaper.
