It is more common now than when I was in high-school in the 1980s (very few of us interned ~ I never did). It seems like over time, students and colleges have placed a level of importance on doing an internship. My guess is that about 30% of HS students in the USA do internships, so I wouldn't term that as common. I personally do not agree with HS students doing internships. It takes away from their study time. Sure, it looks good on a resume, but it's kind of putting too much pressure on young people, in my opinion.
Positive: 50 %
