How can I post internship positions? #
Follow the prompts on our internships posting page HERE. When inserting your internship posting information, make sure to be as specific as possible. Also, make sure you upload your company logo. If you are having any problems, contact us.
What happens after I post positions? #
Before posting a job you are prompted a payment dialog which charges based on the number of hires. Immediately after your payment is confirmed you get a call from us to be told your request for interns is being processed.
Our internal recruiting team helps you find the best interns however you can browse the talent index to shortlist applicants for a position. You get to shortlist 5 times the number of hires you had chosen while posting the position. Applicants can also individually apply to your position. If you decide to shortlist, you can pick an interview date through the platform and the candidates would send a shortlist approval if they agree to make it for the interview at chosen time.
What should my internship posting include? #
You should provide clear and detailed information about your internship opportunity. Remember, whenever there is a student involved, there is a family member involved. If you were explaining an internship to a student's parent and describing why it's a beneficial opportunity and what tasks their child would be doing, what would you say? THAT is what should go into the internship listing. Also, make sure the "company bio" section is filled in. This is an opportunity to educate students on who you are, what you do, and the type of clients that you work with. Assume that students are unfamiliar with your company. If the details are listed as "anonymous", how will a student know to apply? Also, take the opportunity to speak about any accomplishments, accolades, or press mentions. It's competitive out there and you want your listing to put something here stand out. Students are likely choosing between multiple internships. Give them a reason to select your company!
When will I start getting applicants? #
You could start getting applicants within 24 hours of posting your opportunity. The majority of our clients attract at least 1-10 qualified candidates within two weeks of posting their internships. After two weeks of posting, our team will check your account to see how it's going. At that point, if your listing needs more candidates, we'll do extra social promotion and work with your team (complimentary) to find you more applicants.
Do you interview applicants? #
For an extra charge, we can interview applicants for you. Please contact us for more details.
How many rounds of interviews do you recommend? #
We recommend employers conduct at least two rounds of interviews. This helps filter out candidates who aren't interested and makes the students take the process more seriously.
When do the interns start? #
You decide. They can start as soon as they are hired
Do I need to pay my interns? #
Internships can be paid, unpaid, or provide a stipend. The payment status needs to be specified on your job posting. If you have other questions about internship payment or tasks, please email us, we're happy to help.
Frequently Asked Questions By Interns #
Welcome to the #StuternFamily! We are so happy to have you on our website and excited to help connect you with a potential internship! Here are some frequently asked questions, if you have a question that's not answered here, please reach out to us directly via email or Call +2349099997645 anytime from 8:00AM to 6:00PM between Mondays to Fridays.
Do I need to upload a cover letter and resume? #
No. On Stutern, your CV is your profile. We recommend (and require) that you creatively complete your profile and take the personality test before you apply for internships.
How long until I hear back from an employer? #
Every employer is different and has their own recruiting process and/or timeline. We recommend that students apply for 5-10 internships on the website. If it's been two weeks and you haven't heard back from anyone, you might consider applying for more opportunities.
What happens when I apply to a position? #
When you apply to a position successfully, the employer gets it and decides to accept or reject. While the employer hadn't made a decision you would see a PENDING status on your application. When the employer accepts you for an interview you'd get a notification with the time for interview and the status of the application would change to ACCEPTED. If you are not selected for the position your application status changes to REJECTED.
How will I know when new internships are posted? #
Please check our site as frequently as possible. We also recommend that you follow us on Twitter, Instagram and Facebook to learn about new opportunities. We also send out emails every week that talk about new opportunities.
Can I follow up with employers directly? #
You can't follow up with the employers directly BUT we do want to help. Two weeks after you submit your resumes, you can email us and we will be happy to give you any updates
