“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!

About Intern Scale

Intern Scale was founded during COVID-19 in New York City. We are pioneering "internships-as-a-service," helping seed to Series F startups launch competitive, well-run internship programs, fast. Students around the United States have told us the intern application process is broken, and that finding internships with startups is extremely difficult. Startups tell us they don't offer internships because of the hassle involved. We set out to solve both problems at once.
