Co-founded by Akinwunmi Okuyiga and Okuyiga Busayo, 247 Interns is an online recruitment portal that connects those seeking internships to potential employers and vice versa.
Evidently, the demand for internships has been on the rise lately, especially by Nigerian internet startups. While it is more cost-effective for startup employers, it gives interns the opportunities to gain practical and professional experience while honing their skills yet further. This is perhaps what motivated the founder to join the likes of Stutern, Sesewa, and Placement, in adding value to the recruitment space.
However, 247 Interns banks on affordability, social networking, and seamless usage as their selling edge. If the startup proves its worth, it will no doubts be a resourceful addition to the Nigerian recruitment space.
According to the founders, the platform will officially commence operations in August 2017. But pending its launch, you may check out the website.
