Program Testimonials

Just wanted to say thank you for helping us find our summer interns for 2019 – we had one start a few weeks ago, and two more are starting today. We had only intended to get one and maybe two interns, but the pool of candidates was so amazing.

In general, the program you put together was amazing – such an unbelievable value. Like I mentioned, the pool of candidates (~ 25-30 people applied in total) was incredible, and just what we were looking for. Even though I had to turn a few away, we’re staying in contact for future opportunities down the road. It was so easy for us to set-up, and the pre-qualified candidates just rolled in. I can’t imagine doing that ourselves. - Chris Kondogiani, Noble Gas Systems

Bank of Ann Arbor is excited to have found a bright, eager-to-learn college student through the Matchmaker Intern Database. Our intern is delighted to spend the summer in Ann Arbor living with her grandparents and getting real world experience with us. All of the candidates we interviewed through the Matchmaker database were hungry for experience and ready to work. It was a hard choice. The database is a wonderful tool to match businesses and interns. - Rhonda Foxworth, Bank of Ann Arbor
