The concept is about developing an online platform besides a culture campus where any career-level can meet, learn or coach across disciplines. Where creative learning is a playful give and take, from employees to job-seekers AND vice versa!

It is a lack of awareness and availability that is limiting students from being prepared for today's working world. Internship Co. creates awareness and provides students a fair chance to sample the role of their dreams and increase odds of success!

In today's complex environment collaboration is a key competency. This I also believe to be true in career development. I advocate building a community of practice centered around work, through use of low cost digitally collaborative tools.

We believe that there is not a lack of good ideas in the world, but simply a lack of understanding of where, or who, to turn to to exploit those ideas. What is missing are affordable and sustainable spaces to transform those ideas into real projects.

Everyone is different, and so should their paths towards their diploma. Far too often students are stifled by the rigidity of curriculum. A model that encourages students to seek education in all aspects of life doesn't just enlighten, but empowers.

In a world where job opportunities can't keep up with a booming population, we need a systems approach: turn products into services (e.g. the shared economy) and emphasize human capital and human power over machine power.

The key to success is providing access to workers already in the field. I propose a virtual community that links young people to professionals in various subject areas who can provide mentorship and information.

Learning should not occur in silos, and attention to detail across long, multi-dimensional projects is critical to the working world. In schools, students should be given year-long projects that they study using lenses from multiple disciplines.
