Getting work experience through an internship or volunteering may be the ticket to a selective college, a prestigious college internship, and a good job after graduation, a survey of students and employers suggests.

The website and Millennial Branding, a Generation Y research and consulting firm, surveyed nearly 4,500 college students, 170 high school students, and 325 employers.

Having an internship in high school can help students get into a better college, according to 90 percent of the companies surveyed, and 89 percent said the experience would give the students a competitive advantage in securing a college internship or full-time job.
