Tech Recruiting / Talent Acquisition Intern - Fall 2018 (Paid)

Uncubed, New York, NY

Connecting digital talent with innovative companies.

The Company

The future of work has changed. Companies like Google and Facebook have redefined the way that job seekers think about office culture, and about what they want in their careers and lives. Work is becoming more enjoyable. More meaningful. More human.

Uncubed is the leading platform for college students and career transitioners to discover these companies and careers. To learn the skills they’ll need to succeed in the digital economy. And to get hired by the startups and innovative Fortune 100 companies that we work with.

We work with tens of thousands of students each year, nearly 200 colleges, and cutting-edge companies like Dropbox, BuzzFeed, SpaceX, IBM Watson, and Oscar Health.

The Role

We’re seeking a Recruiting / Talent Acquisition Intern who is passionate about matching technical job seekers (computer science and engineering candidates) with jobs they will love.

In this role, you will assist with + learn to:

  • Build successful, high-volume tech recruiting programs
  • Market recruiting programs and open roles to relevant colleges, academic departments, and student organizations
  • Build relationships with university staff, faculty, and students
  • Discover and develop new forms of college recruiting beyond on-campus career fairs and career services
  • Review candidate applications and resumes
  • Advance qualified candidates through the hiring process
  • Embed yourself in the hiring processes of startups and Fortune 100 companies
  • Transform the way that job seekers learn about, apply to, and get hired by employers

The Perks

  • Paid (also available for academic credit)
  • You will learn a lot + directly impact the growth of a business.
  • Have input in company and program decisions. (How many internships offer that?!)
  • Access to a huge network of startups, entrepreneurs, and equally ambitious student leaders across the country.
  • Energetic yet laid back environment. If there’s a Spotify or Google Play Music radio station for it, we’ve probably played it too often and too loud.
  • Casual dress code
  • Meaningful work (Again, how many internships offer that?!)
  • Free access to any/all of our events. Obviously.
  • Stipend for relevant Meetups
  • Career advisement. In this internship and beyond, we want to see you succeed.

As an Uncubed supporter, we hope that you appreciate how much time we dedicate to bringing you the latest content, companies, events, and beyond to make your career more exciting and meaningful.
