Get started

“I highly recommend Intern Scale.”

Polywork is a venture-backed tech startup in NYC, and we have very high standards for recruiting and hiring. Intern Scalewas able to quickly introduce three summer intern candidates from top schools and we hired two of them. I highly recommend Intern Scale to any fast-growing startup who is looking for amazing interns.

“Definitely worth considering!”

Intern Scale was easy to work with and quickly identified several excellent intern candidates for our growing team in Austin. It was significantly easier to hire an intern through Intern Scale than recruit ourselves. Definitely worth considering!

We also value and champion diversity in our student intern pool. DEI initiatives are a core part of our offering, and we work closely with our teams to ensure each intern cohort meets diversity goals.

Frequently Asked Questions

Contact us

Our team does not need help recruiting. Can we still use Intern Scale?

Absolutely. Recruiting is only one component of what we offer. If you have a candidate pipeline and don't need that component of our services, we have special pricing that allows your team to access everything else in our service package at a discount.


How does the student application process work?

We have a general student application where any student from any school can apply to get an internship with an Intern Scale partner. After the student applies, our in-house team reviews their application/resume. We match finalists with our partners.


How is Intern Scale different from Handshake?

Handshake is a platform for employers to post jobs and internships. Intern Scale is a specialized service provider that helps startups and growth companies build and manage their intern programs, from launch to scale.


Do you work with companies based outside the US?

Yes, we work with a number of European and Latin American startups between seed & series F. We primarily help global teams that are growing into the US market. We assist with compliance, contracts, payment, and visa questions.
