The study aims to understand internship experience and competence of employability of university students from college of management in Taiwan by comparing the differences of above-mentioned issues under personal background variables, further discussion of different employability under different internship experience, and lastly, the prediction of personal background variables and internship experience towards employability, with a questionnaire divided into the situation of internship experience,competence of employability, personal information and open-ended questions. The objects are daytime students from public and/or private universities of college of management in northern Taiwan; while 948 copies of 1,060 copies are returned eventually and 945 copies of which are effective samples. The significant findings are shown as follows: A. The situation of internship experience: A low proportion of internship experience exists during the studies internally and/or externally; most of students have relevant internship experience to their majors. Enterprise internship is the main type of internship; periods of internship lasts mostly from two to less than six months and 70 percent of university students get paid during their internship. In addition, 80 percent of university students are taught and supervised by experienced staff from the enterprises; roughly 60 percent of them are fairly satisfied or satisfied with their job duties, leadership management, professional knowledge and skills they obtain from the internship. Nearly 70 percent of them are fairly satisfied or satisfied with the fact that internship experience benefits their personal career planning; experience gained from how to get along with colleagues during the internship receives the highest degree of satisfactory. B. University students assume that their competence of employability is between“average” and “sufficient”, while the mean score of “attitudes and responsibilities” is the highest of all dimensions and “adaptability”,“innovation and development”,“emotional stability” and “interpersonal relationships and leadership” come in second, third, fourth and fifth respectively. C. The degree of satisfactory with internship is influenced by gender, grade, types of university, motive and family socio-economic status. D. The gender, grade, types of university, motive and family socio-economic status have a noticeable impact on “attitudes and responsibilities”, “adaptability”, “innovation and development”, “interpersonal relationships and leadership” and“emotional stability.” E. The internship experience, major-related internship, periods of internship and whether salary is included or not affect the aspects of competence of employability. F. Interns’ satisfactory with the enterprises plays the major role of explanation for overall competence of employability and the aspect of “emotional stability”, while major-related internship and the average of interns’ satisfactory with the enterprises highly illustrate the aspect of “attitudes and responsibilities.” Gender and motive for gaining relevant job experience also play the major role of explanation for the aspect of “innovation and development”, while periods of internship highlight the aspect of “interpersonal relationships and leadership.” G. Based on the answers to open-ended questions, university students agree the reason why universities or enterprises put emphasis on internship experience of university students; among the factors, nearly 70 percent of students approve of the reasons “students can gain experience, understand the duties of jobs, get used to work place and benefit their future career” and “universities promote internship positively.” Besides, university students consent to the facts that internship can enhance the competence of employability during college studies; “obtaining job experience, cultivating the competence of employability, preparation for the future” and “understanding the environment of work place, shortening the period of adaption” take the highest account, 76.89 percent of university students. The study hereby proposes based on the results for students, universities career consulting units, relevant government entities and enterprises as well as further research in terms of university students’ reference to internship and improvement on their competence of employability.
