disrupting the summer internship

setting the scene

  • as a college student, you frantically apply to hundreds of internships in hopes that an employer finds something interesting on your resume ๐Ÿ”Ž
  • weeks go by; you get a few online interview invitations, some automated rejections, but radio silence from the rest ๐Ÿคฌ
  • what if there was a better way for students and employers to connect beyond the traditional resume screen and ambiguous summer internship process? ๐Ÿ“„
  • this week’s company provides a platform for college students to gain professional experience and for employers to better understand gen z ๐Ÿ’ก

in a sentence

Home From College is a platform for college students to build their careers and companies to connect with students for recruiting and marketing needs

  • students: create a digital business card that communicates interests, passions, and experience; then, apply to gigs ranging from internships to advisory panels
  • companies: hire students for traditional roles or initiatives like campus ambassador programs and product testing

bulleted version: HFC takes student recruiting to the next level by creating a mutually beneficial platform for students to access work and companies to access the gen z perspective ๐ŸŽ“

due diligence

what we like

  • ๐Ÿ”Œ plugging into gen z: companies struggle to understand gen z’s needs in a work setting
    • a comprehensive student profile allows employers and marketers to better connect with the soon-to-be most populous generation
  • ๐Ÿ’ฅ the right market: Home From College targets a career-focused, technology-loving audience in a setting where word spreads quickest: college campuses
  • ๐Ÿ”ฎ the future is data: the company is growing a unique student database that will serve as a powerful tool for corporations looking to access gen z for marketing and recruiting needs

potential risks

  • ๐Ÿ˜ฐ competitive landscape: it may be difficult to steal market share from Handshake, recruiting giants, and social media platforms like LinkedIn
  • ๐Ÿ‘ฅ limited audience? gen z isn’t the only generation fed up with the job search process
  • ๐Ÿ“ company-dependent: it may take some convincing to engage companies on another hiring platform
