Will summer internships be cancelled?Watch
With the coronavirus rapidly spreading, what do you guys think will happen to the internships we worked so hard to get? I'm quite scared that mine will be cancelled. If they are cancelled, do you think they'd give us a graduate role or make us re-apply?
Events are changing fast so predicting what the state of play will be in the summer is pointless.
They could cancel.
They could postpone.
They could proceed as normal.
If things go badly they could well be laying people off and reducing recruitment. See how things go.
TLDR: Stop stressing and just relax and don't get sick!
A good internship employer should have got in touch by now - but honestly it’s too early to call. It seems likely they will go ahead
I had an internship with PwC in London this summer and had an email 2 days ago to say that they are cancelling all summer programmes, including internships but hope to be able to offer us something in 2021.
