Your business is about to receive an influx of intern applications. College students want to intern in not just the most successful businesses – but the most innovative, and technology advanced companies – and what better way to pitch your business or company summer internship program, by including the fact that your internship program has an app.

 CNN recently wrote how college students are using mobile apps in more ways than we realized. In fact, traditionally known as a ‘hook up app’ – college students are now using Tinder not just for love or hookups – but as a way to create and cultivate friendships. Yes, that’s right – college students have taken the swipe left or swipe right app and made it about friendships – proving that more than ever, this group of next generation business owners and leaders in the cooperate field – the ones you want to come intern for you, so they return to work for you – are technology driven – and it all starts in their hands - with a phone and an app.

Why does all of this matter? Because college students are looking for an easy route.

You are providing a way for them to receive the information they want and need – while being able to measure and track what they are seeing and engaging with to better help you reach them today and tomorrow.
