According to our research, less than 20% of undergraduate students reach out to career services for advice on finding internships or applying to graduate schools. Out of that percentage, 57% of students are not happy with the networking opportunities that their school offers.
That led us to think about our own career services, and how we would like to create a more accessible platform for Bridgewater College students. Helping them to reach their higher potential by aiming for competitive internships on local, regional, and national levels.
We address the problem in three steps:
- Create awareness to learn about opportunity options.
- Website to guide step by step.
- Mobile app to find what you look for.
This is an innovative approach to give access to college students to professional opportunities like internships, summer programs, and job experiences via a mobile application.
