There have been several startups aimed at reinventing résumé and achievement presentation. Intern Sushi launched with an eye to presentation in film, television, sports, music, fashion and advertising internships and has since expanded, mostly into tech. The site is dual purpose, helping prospective interns create exciting achievement records and prospective employers sift creatively through the résumé deluge.
Résumé presentation is only one aspect of Sushi, which aims to become a social network and task management platform for the entire internship process. As an employer, you’re able to assign projects and track progress through the site and when the internship is over, upload a recommendation video to the student’s profile. The site’s paid features are tempting and clever, premium interns are able to post unlimited videos targeted at specific positions and get a 48-hour advance on applying to all positions.
