Abstract: This paper presents the current situation of school practice and internships as ways of reducing the gap between the labor market and education. In the first part, there is highlighted the current situation of Romania comparing with other European countries when it comes about graduates finding a job in their field of studies. Among the biggest issues encountered by a young graduate we see that "Lack of experience” play a big role in not finding a proper job in our country after graduation. So the need to reduce this problem is vital in order to ease finding a job in the studies areas for graduates. A list of advantages is presented to encourage internships/school practice among the students. Observing the upsides aspects of having such an experience, a research was done among 13 companies in Sibiu to see if indeed they taking into consideration candidates for a serious job, having done an internship/school practice. The results of this survey are presented below, seeing if indeed for a Romanian student is valuable to have an experience like that.
