Tell me and I’ll forget,
Teach me and I may remember,
Involve me and I’ll understand.
— Benjamin Franklin

Internpreneur was launched in 2013 to connect outstanding students to paid internships at growing companies.

 

Even the best students need to get real-world experience and build a personal network during school to move into a career after graduation. Job boards are notoriously ineffective, and few students have relevant guidance to help them get off campus and into the marketplace to build relationships, leaving them wondering where to start.

While students struggle to connect with professionals, there are thriving businesses that need access to new talent, but likewise seem to struggle reaching students. Every career center, department, and program is different, making it an inefficient and frustrating process for most businesses to recruit students on their own.

When students do find an internship, they typically report being discouraged by managers who give them pointless work, or who simply aren't prepared to work with and train an intern. Employers tell us they aren't satisfied with many students' professionalism, and they don't have an effective way to onboard, train, evaluate, and manage interns semester after semester.

Done right, internships create immense opportunity for everyone involved.

That's why we built Internpreneur...
