Having problems looking for the right talent?

Some companies have the luxury of organizing campus recruitment and trainee programmes to hire the best talents. However, the lack of such avenues should not hinder smaller firms from hiring quality interns.

These days, students look for more in their internship opportunities than simply choosing reputable firms and securing a full-time conversion. They are often savvy enough to consider experiences that could help advance their desired careers and futures.

Your company may not be one of the big boys in your respective industry, but it may offer the kind of experiences that students want to get out of an internship.

And here’s how you can reach out to them. The following job portal websites possess various features that can help facilitate your recruitment needs.



Glints places an emphasis on talent acquisition.

If you are on the hunt for quality young professionals with specialised skills, this may be the right place to hire them. It is free to post jobs on Glints.

Glints doesn’t require employers to upload a long description for each job posting as it provides job description templates that are extremely useful.

Here are some of their talent-hunting efforts:

InternSG is a platform that focuses solely on internships. Even Fortune500 companies post internship jobs here.

While it is free for companies to post a job here, there is an option for a premium service where companies can achieve greater outreach for a fee. The ability to reach overseas applicants is one of InternSG’s unique features.

Various other advertising tools are available on its website as well.

TalentTribe is a recruitment and employer branding platform for employers to better attract and hire the right millennial talent.

Unlike the usual job portal with endless text-based listings, TalentTribe aims to equip users with an in-depth view of each employers by showcasing its unique culture, office, people and day-to-day work life.

For its free tier, companies are allowed to post job listings with an overview of the company, key information and a visual look via photos.

However, the real innovation comes with its paid tier, where a team will create “a beautiful, content-rich profile, including a virtual office walk-through video, employee videos, rich photo visuals, and bite-sized content, which shares an inside look into life at your company – right next to your job opportunities”.
