New Chegg Internships

Chegg Internships – the new and improved way to find interns.

We’re proud to announce the launch of our new and improved internships marketplace, Chegg Internships.

With our new platform, we are:

  • Integrating internships.com more closely with Chegg.  With 87% of college students aware of Chegg*, we believe we will dramatically improve the reach of your postings.

  • Providing students more guidance and preparation when they apply to postings, driving qualified applicants to your postings.

  • Making it easier for employers to manage their postings and applicants, making you more efficient and productive. 

We’re here to help as you get acquainted with the new experience. Please contact us for any help you need as you start posting internships and contacting applicants through the new platform, or if you need assistance getting to your previously submitted content.

Here’s what to expect in the first 30 days of the new platform, how to use the new platform, and highlights of the changes in functionality.

The first 30 days:

  1. Phased rollout – jobs posted before May 20th: we don’t want you to miss a beat in your hiring, so any jobs posted before May 20th will continue to be found by students with no extra work from you. You’ll still be able to manage applicants for those jobs (both reviewing applications and messaging) by going to https://legacy.internships.com, until at least June 20th.

  2. Phased rollout – jobs posted after May 20th: for jobs going forward, use the new platform at www.internships.com/employer to post, review applications and message applicants. You’ll need to create a new account, but don’t worry – we’ll be with you every step of the way if you need help!

  3. URL changes: some URLs to the site will change, so if you use bookmarks be sure to switch to the new ones:

  • Employer homepage: www.internships.com/employer

  • Employer login: https://employer.internships.com/login

How to use the new platform:

  1. Create an account: Go to http://employer.internships.com/signup to create your new Chegg Internships account. This will allow you to post internships (and jobs) for free.

  • Give us your name, company email and company name.

  • You’ll get an email (check your junk/spam if you don’t see it within 30 minutes) – just click on the link to activate your account.

  • Then just create a password, and give us some more details about your company, and you’re set!

  1. Start posting internships (and jobs):

  • From your new dashboard page, you can start posting new jobs. Click on “post a new job”, and you can enter all of the same job detail information you’re used to.

  • Additionally, you can new enter the URL for a separate site you’d like the candidates to apply on, if you’d prefer not to manage applicants inside of Chegg Internships.

  1. Managing postings:

  • From your dashboard, once you post a job or internship you can still view, edit, duplicate, new, or close it by clicking on the action link (3 dots) by each job title Closing will now remove the job from search listings, although existing applicants will still be able to see the position description. To completely take down a position, you can now delete it as well.

  • You can still filter your jobs, to see only positions of a certain status (example: all actively posted jobs or all closed jobs - now you can also sort by date or title.

  1. Managing applicants:

  • You can still see applicants’ resumes and cover letters – from your dashboard, just click on the applicants link to review each one. From here, you can review their application. If you’re interested in proceeding, you can start a message thread with them (they’ll get an email when you have), or you can mark them as rejected (this is for you only – nothing will be disclosed to the candidate about this).

Some features we had on the old platform just didn’t work very well. Instead of moving these over as-is for launch, we decided to take more time with them so we could build up a better experience in the future – one that could really help you improve your hiring and recruiting practices. These include candidate search, job templates, and message templates. If you’d like to get in touch with us specifically about this functionality, please reach out to us.
