    Get work off your plate
    Get work off your plate

    by posting a Micro-Internship project. Our customizable project templates make it easy to create a posting—it only takes five minutes. 

    Discover untapped candidates

    without any extra effort—they come to you. Career Launchers are students and recent graduates from schools across the U.S., including first generation, international, and minority students.

    Assess skills that matter

    through watching candidates in action as they take on a project. Soft skills rank at the top of the list for entry-level professional roles—but resumes and interviews don’t tell the full story. Micro-Internships allow you to actually evaluate those capabilities that matter most to the role.

    Gain valuable feedback

    from hiring managers on candidates’ capabilities in real time—and determine whether a candidate should be considered for a longer-term opportunity. We’ll also provide you with data you can use to strengthen your campus recruiting program, like: where Micro-Interns attend school, what skills are most in-demand by your hiring managers, and recommendations for candidate next steps to keep them engaged.

    Campus recruiting is tough, whether you’ve got a small team or a dedicated early-career recruiting function. Companies struggle to effectively cast a net that includes candidates from diverse backgrounds, assess individuals beyond a six-second resume scan, and differentiate career opportunities as candidates receive similar messages from employers at every turn. We’re here to help you tackle these challenges—with our easy-to-use platform.

    Access, engage, assess, and hire early-career talent
