Prior to our engagement with Wonderbench, I was unaware of a micro-internship. Wonderbench hits it out of the park with talent sourcing. We received multiple highly skilled candidates from a nationwide footprint. The most difficult part of our process was picking from the impressive candidate pool. The Wonderbench team was our valued consultant throughout the process and was instrumental in the ideation of a second micro-internship.

Wonderbench removed the friction at each point of the internship journey. Whether it was the creation of a clear description of the internship opportunity, the candidate job fit report, or the pre-filmed video interviews, Workbench's platform provided a curated experience for each candidate that made the process seamless.
