InternMatch Matches Employers with Student Interns
Though professors and career service offices at your school can help you get matched up with an internship, it’d be nice to have the tools to search on your own as well. Luckily, InternMatch is quickly becoming the go-to source for students in the job market.
InternMatch hopes to eventually replace the student job fair, and they might be well on their way. Companies looking for new interns can list their positions on the site, and get a full refund if they don’t find a suitable candidate in 60 days. Students can easily find suitable positions sorted by city and skill set, and in my limited experience with the site, there definitely seem to be more job listings than I found just a few months ago.
The site has been around for a little while, but things are really getting exciting. First, they just secured a hefty $500,000 round of funding, which should help them continue to lure new businesses. If you’d like to learn more about certain companies, the site also recently launched “Community Pages” that put the spotlight directly on internship programs, rather than generic business details.
The site only recently stretched its presence to the west east coast, but now the entire continental US is covered, so there’s no reason not to try out a quick search if you’re an American student. As an added bonus, InternMatch will soon be giving you 50 free Moo Card business cards (if you’re unfamiliar, they’re very nice) when you create an account. This promotion will begin in the next few weeks, but I don’t have the exact date, so keep checking. Happy job hunting!
