Securing the right internship can determine whether you get your desired job in the future

We don’t want you to settle, because there’s a lot at stake. AI and Applicant Tracking Systems filter out 75% of all applications, recruiters only spend 6-7 seconds reading a resumé when they see it, and thousands of applicants are vying for coveted internships.

  • Your coach crafts cover letters that align your skills with the requirements for each job application
  • Our interview skills specialist helps you build your story and prepares you to handle challenging questions
  • We create one-way video interviews so you can practice with the industry standard software used by most employers
  • Our team thoroughly prepares you for each interview and debriefs with you after

Every step of the journey we spend countless hours doing research into industries, companies, potential connections, and opportunities. We meet with you weekly, and sometimes more often, to keep you moving forward. We provide the accountability you need – always keeping the focus on securing the internship that will set you up for future success.
