Thanks to Emily Chang and her eHub for outlining the following company.
How do you as a Realtor and entrepreneur leverage your expertise, knowledge, and experience as “commerce” in your quest to meet your human capital needs during one of the most challenging markets in recent memory? How do you cut the costs of hiring human capital? The solution may be the newly minted Internshipin.com. The brainchild of UC Berkeley students Arielle Patrice Scott, Jessica Mah, and Andy Su, Internshipin.com, Internshipin.com bills itself
“We know startups, especially early and mid-stage startups, have a difficult time recruiting at different universities. We also know students have a hard time finding internship opportunities at companies doing something important to them. We fill this connection gap with company profiles, university partnerships and more! In short, internshipIN plays matchmaker for students and startups!”
internshipIn is a resource, community, search engine, and job board rolled into one. It matches students to desired internships.
1. Q: What kinds of internships can we post on internshipIn? A: Whatever internships you have available paid or unpaid. The only requirement is that companies consult the US Department of Labor Fair Labor Act before developing their internships.
2. Q: How much does it cost to get started on internshipIn? A: It is free to setup your company profile. Right now it is free to post internship listings.
If you have plenty of experience and knowledge in your niche. If you can trade on this knowledge and you are willing to mentor a student; then consider the win-win situation of saving human capital costs while helping to develop new skill sets and launch a career for a student.
