HOW IT WORKS
No coffee runs here. This is industry experience. Go beyond school organizations and volunteering and into the real world.
Who can sign up?
Any high school students over 14 are eligible to sign up, including recent graduates. Unfortunately, current college students are not eligible.
Are there any required qualifications?
Anyone is free to join! There are no requirements for GPA, extracurriculars, etc. Don’t be concerned about your resume or grades—we’re most interested in who you are.
Are internships guaranteed?
Machi focuses on what opportunities are right for the student so we are selective with our matches. We cannot guarantee internships. Hiring decisions are ultimately at the company’s discretion. Similarly, acceptance of the offer is up to the student.
can i see all the internships?
Students see only their personalized matches. We match (instead of list) roles to prioritize meaningful candidate-employer relationships, as well as reduce the time-consuming and free-for-all nature of most job listing sites. Our high conversion rates from candidate to hire mean less wasted time for both the student and the company.
how are interns paid?
Interns are paid by their employer, and all roles above 15 hours a week are paid. Beneath 15 hours a week, payment varies by internship (including hourly wages, stipends, unpaid, volunteer, etc). However, we always accommodate students’ needs. If you can only take paid roles, please let us know.
how long does matching take?
Because each student has different skills, interests, personality, and availability, the matching process and timeline will be unique for everyone.
do i get help with my interview and resume?
We’re here to help. Our associates assist students through resume revisions and interview prep. Once you’re a part of Machi, message your associate for any assistance needed! If you need help outside of the job process, both we and our mentors are happy to assist.
are all internships virtual?
Currently, yes! Due to the pandemic, remote work is the safest option. Additionally, our students’ options are no longer limited by location so we can find them the best fit across the country.
can students outside the us join?
Unfortunately, Machi only serves students within the United States. If you are a U.S. citizen living outside the country, please contact us for more information.
