As students at Georgia Tech who went through the internship process multiple times, we consistently found a lack of honest or helpful information on what internships were actually like. This led to disappointing experiences or missed opportunities. Job descriptions were often misleading or vague, while job review sites were focused on full-time positions and asked questions like CEO approval rating or yearly salary, questions less relevant to students looking for a great ~3 month, resume-building, learning experience. We wanted our classmates to be able to share their experiences with one another in an easy and effective way so that we would all be able to make more informed decisions and get internships we would love.
The result? We built Canary, an open platform for students to share about their experiences and help their classmates get the internship of their dreams. Canary empowers students to avoid bad internships, find great ones, and prepare themselves to land it.
