For the second time, Southwestern Advantage has been chosen by WayUp as part of their Top 100 Internship List for 2021 by a panel of industry expert judges and thousands of public votes.
WayUp is a popular “job matchmaker” (job site and mobile app) for college students and recent graduates where they can create a profile to match them with potential employers based on the candidate’s profile, past experiences, and skillset. It also consists of resources including searches by company, industry, or location, as well as pro tips to help an entry-level candidate land their dream job.
In addition to a full listing on the WayUp site, an article on Forbes.com also profiles the companies featured on the 2021 list.
In 2017, WayUp created and launched “National Intern Day,” celebrated on July 29, as a way to observe the future leaders of the world – interns! According to WayUp, the intent behind the holiday is to “help bring attention to the challenges and inequalities entry level candidates face in the workplace” and help “companies see how investing in a diverse internship program can be an investment in the future of their company.” The Top 100 Internship Programs List recognizes the employers and organizations who go above and beyond for their interns. Southwestern Advantage was also recognized in 2019 as a Top 100 Internship. This is the fifth year WayUp has announced their Top 100 List.
Southwestern Advantage joins a very prestigious group of companies from diverse industries with that include Adobe, Amazon, American Express, Bank of America, Cisco, General Motors, Google, Facebook, IBM, Shopify, SurveyMonkey, Twitter, and Unilever to name a few.
