Due to the global pandemic, internship programs are shutting down or going remote. Internships are key to students’ careers and professional development and an essential part of a company’s recruiting strategy.  Recently, we announced efforts to support students during COVID-19. We have also supported the companies in our community in making the transition to hosting remote internship programs. 


We are excited to continue those efforts by partnering with Symba to make sure that those internship experiences are meaningful for both students and companies. To learn more about the platform click here.


Internships are the most diverse of tech talent pipelines. Providing a tool for companies to equitably evaluate interns and encourage intern engagement in their remote program is absolutely essential.  Likewise, it’s just as important during the current climate to not allow ourselves to take a step back on inclusion.

– Char Delapena, Executive Director of URx & Head of University Recruiting Robinhood.
