Internships are the single most important factor to landing a job after college, however, there are many barriers to participation. Over twelve million students do not have access to participate in an internship program even though they seek the opportunity; in addition, 40% of internships are unpaid, disproportionately affecting African-, Hispanic-, and multiracial Americans. After interviewing 250+ talent leaders, Symba’s co-founders discovered that employers lack the necessary tools and resources to scale accessible experiential learning opportunities and needed a solution.
Symba’s internship management platform facilitates equitable access to jobs and wealth creation by enabling employers to streamline inefficiencies and scale critical early-in-career job opportunities to more diverse job seekers globally. We also partner with nonprofits like YUPRO and INROADS to power their programs supporting Opportunity Talent and underserved communities. Symba was named a leader in the remote work revolution, and an innovator in the HR tech space by Forbes.
