That's according to the results of a survey conducted by Marketplace and The Chronicle of Higher Education asking employers to weigh in on what they look for in today's recent grads. Marketplace's education correspondent Amy Scott explored that data in a sort of mock interview setting yesterday, and reported on the importance of internships on the Morning Report.
