Are internships inherently adult student un-friendly?

Reported by EdSurge, while internships have always aimed to fill this experience “gap”, more and more adult students are shut out of the internship world since they’re already full-time employees at another company.

Many of these adults are willing to pursue night and weekend opportunities, but these don’t often match the available working hours of traditional internships.

The takeaway? More colleges and organizations are working to break this barrier through virtual, remote and project-based internships? Is now potentially the perfect time to prove the model?
