New grads and first-time job seekers are often frustrated by the conundrum of job experience and training as is dissected in the Entry Level Hiring Infographic.

While experience is essential, even for most entry level positions, 85% of educational institutions don't teach or provide the necessary training or skills required in the workforce. Having graduated with nothing but four years of university education under their belts, graduates are forced to take on part-time jobs to make ends meet or apply for an internship that may be paid or unpaid and may or may not lead them in the door to their desired career.

Though everything seems uncertain, it's comforting to know that internships that provide the necessary training in the related field do exist, which is why it's important to do the required research before applying to save applicants and potential employers time.
