Equilar has been working with Intrax interns for over 4 years now. Our experience has been wonderful – the interns we’ve worked with have all had fantastic work ethic, positive attitudes, and willingness to support our business in just about any area. We currently have an Engineering intern, Marketing intern, and Client Services intern working with us right now. We’ve also used Intrax interns for a Sales internship in the past. Intrax makes it easy to find great candidates and facilitates the process so we don’t have to worry about anything but providing a great work environment.
