Young people need internships to gain experience and get ahead in cutthroat professional industries, while companies need interns to handle routine tasks and take the burden off of overworked staffers. So why does the process of getting internships and finding qualified interns have to be so hard? Intern Sushi thinks it has the solution for stressed out students and time-starving managers.
Get out your paper resume, crumble it in a ball, and throw it in the trash. Intern Sushi handles works entirely in the cloud, giving would-be interns a way to separate themselves from the hoards of other applicants with similar educational qualifications and limited work experience. Create a digital profile that includes your education, personal interests, and work history, and upload a one-minute video telling would-be employers a little bit about yourself. Stay on top of your applications throughout the entire hiring process, and respond to employers who’d like to set up interviews with you directly through the platform. You can even accept internships offers through Intern Sushi. Once you’ve landed the gig, you can learn more about what to expect by watching educational videos, and manage the tasks that you’ve been assigned with customizable Intern Sushi widgets.
Intern Sushi isn’t just made for applicants. It’s useful for companies, too. Businesses with available internship opportunities can create digital profiles (just like applicants) and use Intern Sushi’s tools for hiring and managing interns. Interns apply through the platform directly, without cluttering your email inbox with resumes and cover letters. As a manager, you can track applications, arrange interviews, and even offer internships to your favorite candidates without ever leaving the Intern Sushi site.
