SANTA CLARA, Calif., Jan. 16, 2014 /PRNewswire/ -- Chegg Inc. (NYSE: CHGG) today announced that Dan Rosensweig, Chairman and CEO, has been invited as a participant in President Obama's "College Pipeline Initiative" Summit, taking place on January 16, 2014 in Washington D.C. The Summit brings together key representatives of the higher education community, practitioners, philanthropists, members of the private sector, and city and state leaders to help more low-income students reach college and ensure they succeed once they get there.
To highlight their continued commitment to students, Chegg today also announced a new partnership with Internships.com, the world's largest internship marketplace, to bring students, employers and higher education institutions together to make internships more discoverable and accessible to all students. According to research fielded by Chegg, only half of all college students have completed an internship, while a vast majority of employers rank the completion of any internship as an important factor in determining which recent grads they are more likely to hire.
Using Chegg's resume builder and insights on students' schools, locations, curriculums and majors, users of the new service on Chegg.com will be matched with thousands of employers and internship opportunities made available through the Internships.com platform.
As part of its plan to continually expand the available internship opportunities throughout the year, Chegg is calling on employers to offer more and better internships and will use the opportunity of the White House summit to elevate its call to action for employers.
