Finding right-fit and diverse talent is a puzzle many organizations are struggling to solve. Only 10% of mid-size to large companies are satisfied with the diversity of their internship programs and even fewer know how to screen for purpose.

To reach non-traditional pools of talent, hiring teams are being asked to be more efficient, with less time and fewer resources, all while providing a better candidate experience.
