In the past I’ve been pretty unsuccessful with applying for internships with many turndowns. Brand Ambassadors for Magnet.me were promoting it via my university website, which is where I first noticed them. I made an account which was really easy, then checked out some companies, connecting with the ones I was interested in. It was so good to be able to have them all on one platform in one place.
I found companies who were looking for students like me; the distance filter made it really simple for me to find companies and opportunities near me. I even got in touch with a few recruiters who I reached out to, and who reached out to me! Companies actually got in contact with me!
When it came to applying for internships, I used Magnet.me so much more than Linkedin – where it matters more who you know, or Targetjobs, which is literally just a job board. With Magnet.me it’s more about the application processes; discovering companies and opportunities I’ve never heard of, that match with me.
That’s how I found Royal Bank of Canada, after learning more about them on their page, I was really keen to work for them and they had perfect opportunities for me. I applied straight away! I’m now 6 weeks into my internship, I really feel like a part of the team. I have Magnet.me to thank for making me aware of this opportunity and I cannot recommend a better website for students!
