InternSHARE is a website that is aimed at arming students with the information required to decide about their internship. It’s a portal which allows students access to all sorts of really useful information. You will be able to find out the roles that the companies get interns to do as well as whether or not people enjoyed it. Some interns are nothing more than coffee makers, and so it’s beneficial to find out exactly what you will be doing before deciding which company to choose for your internship. Armed with this information you will be able to make an informed decision and choose the ideal company for you to flourish.
The Beta version of the site was launched in September 2008, with the site being launched officially in December 2008. The site was created by Michael Novati and Anuj Gupta. InternSHARE has merged with another similar website called coop.com.
Unlike other internship sites you can find out about peoples opinions from former interns. These are direct from the horse’s mouth which makes them credible and reliable. It’s able to search through the reviews of internships at various companies. One very interesting feature is the ability to link it to your facebook account and invite all of your contacts onto the site.
InternSHARE is a very nicely designed website with lots of really nice features to make sure that you choose the right internship position for you. It’s so important that you choose an intern position that matches what you want to do for the rest of your life. The site is split into a number of different sections and has a number of well known companies that offer intern positions. Clicking on any one of these will bring up a review so that you can learn whether or not you believe the position would be beneficial for you.
Registering for an account at internSHARE is easy; if you have a facebook account then you can log in using that instead of having to register. If you do register then you will need to enter your name, email address, and password. If you don’t want to receive the newsletter then make sure that the checkbox is unchecked before clicking the submit button. You will then receive an email which you will need to read and click a link inside so that you can activate your account.
InternSHARE is completely free and there don’t appear to be any adverts anywhere on the site.
InternSHARE is only really suitable for students looking to find an internship position. It’s quite useful because they can find out what their role will entail before choosing a company. This ensures that the intern position isn’t a waste of everyone’s time. Most reviews however are too short to be really useful.
