We are considering a new program this Fall and I'm hoping to get your opinion of the idea.

Here goes...a common problem I hear from students is that they don't have enough time between getting a full-time offer from their summer internship and when the offer expires. They also don't want to walk around a career fair if they have a job offer, but still would love having a few offers to compare. So the program we are designing would work like this...

Each week, Readyforce would select 100 students to present to top companies. Selected students must have at least 1 job offer already. Companies would review student profiles and make an upfront competitive offer (salary, options, etc) and a pitch why students should interview with them based.

These offers are non-binding, but help students get an expedited interview process without needing to apply online or go to a career fair. Our hope is that this program will help students get 2 to 3 additional formal job offers before they need to make a final decision.

We would love your feedback/ideas in the following form:

Thanks in advance,
