InternMatch, a company focused on matching college students with employers has announced an additional round of funding worth $1.2 million, to increase its internship platform targeting both underclassmen and graduates. The firm is keen on branding in future as well. This round of funding was led by the previous investors Dave McClure, Mitch Kapor, and Vishal Makhijani as well as new investors from AngelList and others including, Matt Ocko and Rudy Gadre, Facebook’s former General Counsel, reports Sarah Perez of TechCrunch.
The Company had earlier had raised a funding of $500,000 from Marc Randolph, founder Netfix, Roger Dickey, Angel Fund Social Leverage, 500 startups and others which bought the total funding to $900,000.
Founded in 2009, InterenMatch can make way for businesses to expand. They can easily reach out to students who prefer to do their online news. Currently, the company works with over 250 universities, to propagate these websites to students. There are some professors, who show a keen interest and provide suggestions and there are also student unions who often keep in touch with the company for placements.
This site enables companies for promotion using online “Campus Hub” where they can share information about their company, their latest ventures and recent updates. Students get an idea about the companies and of the interesting things happening in there also. There is a “talent war” among the students, once they get to know that the environment is friendly and a fun place to work.
With the recent round of funding, InternMatch plans to expand the current nine-member team and expand it with more engineers and salesman. Most importantly, the company plans to provide jobs to students across the world, making it big in the job creation. Down the lane, the company plans to outbeat job sites like CareerBuilder, Monster, and Dice to catch the attention of students.
