Interning is intelligent.
The unemployment and job markets are always under a magnifying glass, but the internship process appears to be more formal than it actually is. Looksharp wanted to build a platform where interns could get the same attention that professionals receive in the post-college job market. Very helped make it happen.
Can a new process simplify the fragmented internship market? Many colleges and corporations have programs that connect students to internships. But the process is often informal and complicated. Looksharp set out to create a more technically intelligent and user-friendly way for students to find great internships — and for companies to find great future employees. The company asked Very to build a platform that would help them transform the internship market.
We began by rethinking the process, exploring ways to make it more intelligent and effective. Then we focused on validating the business model, identifying user profiles, and developing use-case scenarios. Initial wireframes and prototypes were created for the platform to prove that the required technical build actually fit the business need. It did.
