WayUp is the largest online marketplace exclusively for U.S. college students looking for part-time jobs, summer internships, virtual gigs and full-time jobs upon graduation.
Employers are able to use WayUp to specifically target students all across the US. Once an employer posts a job via WayUp, they are able to filter for diverse candidates by selecting specific attributes such as university, GPA, major, languages spoken etc. Only the students who meet these qualifications are able to see the job posting and apply for it - saving time, money, and increasing overall efficiency. Employers are able to post across as many college campuses as they want, allowing hiring managers to dive into WayUp’s student base, comprised of nearly half a million college students, 72% of whom account for underrepresented minorities.
On the flip side, when a student signs up for the site (completely for free), s(he) is able to fill out a comprehensive student profile. Once a student creates a profile on WayUp, (s)he only sees jobs that (s)he is qualified for and can apply for a job using this profile, simply by selecting ‘apply’. Students are also able to filter jobs by industry and season depending on what job they’re looking for e.g. they can apply for part-time jobs during the semester or over the summer, internships and entry-level jobs after they graduate. Since students are only shown jobs that they qualify for, they are already a step up in the job-application game.
