Internme.com is an Australian-based job portal run by students for students in an effort to help them make the transition from academic to professional.
The website was created by two students (Jayden Kafanelis and Dylan Trickey) to tackle the difficulties recent graduates encounter when trying to find employment.
InternMe’s online platform is a free service for all students and graduates and their objective is to remain free to use for their fellow academics as we are a representative of them and genuinely understand the challenges they face.
They have developed this platform in the HR managers and recruiter’s best interests. InternMe believes that their model saves HR managers time, money and resources as well as providing them with access to a niche university population to market too.
Companies will not be charged advertising fees, subscription fees, recruiter costs or any hidden costs but will be charged $500 placement fees when they en place or employ an individual from InternMe.
The platform allows students to build “3D resumes” of themselves. Students and graduates are required to fill out all the required information from their university course they are studying, job roles and job types they are seeking (part time, full time, internship etc.).
InternMe give them the ability to upload virtual portfolios where they can demonstrate their capabilities related to their field of study, upload profile pictures and provide biographies and self-assessed skillsets. InternMe are looking to implement video resumes in the future along with IM chat for companies and applicants to speed up the employment process.
