Hi there! I think you are asking internship or grad school? So here's what I think on that one...either or both. There are many program tracks that might fit the bill for you. You can check out ours at www.att.jobs/college
That having been said, what I think you will find is that different programs are going to demand different experience, education, skill sets etc. Chances are really good that the career center at the school you just graduated from can connect you with University Relations Managers from different companies you might be interested. Career fairs can be a great chance to connect fact to face with people in the know about the best point of entry for your desired companies.
One thing I will say about internships and development programs is this...the company then has a vested interest in your success. This can be a truly huge positive for you. They want to find you a position in their ranks after they have invested time and knowledge in you. A job is the goal right!
Now grad school...something to investigate is whether or not further education is going to make a difference in the career you are aiming for. Check out the career pages of the companies you admire or that you want to work for. Do the job descriptions include a preference for a masters? Do you have the time/money/inclination to take on further education? There are personal questions, but they are extremely valid.
Best of luck in your search!
