the problem

Who has access to preliminary job experiences?

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.
