Driven-U connects university students to local businesses so they can collaborate on small, project based gigs. Think of us as a mix between craigslist and LinkedIn. No more sketchy meetups with randoms. Students can gain exposure in their desired workforce, keep every project local, and build up a solid working resume while they go to school. No long-term commitments for students, and endless possibilities.
All a student needs to do is fill out their member profile, post their skill set or skillsets and local businesses will contact you when they need your help. If you’re awesome at something, Driven-U believes you should be recognized for it, even if it isn’t part of your major.
Finally have a free weekend where you don’t have to study for midterms? Want to make extra cash pursuing your passion? Stressed about graduating without a job lined up? Driven-U created this site for you.
We understand (unfortunately) the life of a broke college student. Meal points become a form of currency, buying books becomes something to put off until the first mid-term, and constantly trying to budget your way through the week. We know you don't have extra cash to spend, but your future definitely deserves a few minutes doesn't it?
We take the stress out of having to actively search for small jobs, you are busy enough as it is! You don’t need to have a huge network or to be wasting your time scouring the web for gigs. The days of banging your head against your keyboard trying to find work opportunities are over.
Local small businesses want to work within their community. They are constantly being bombarded with new problems and projects. Sometimes these small businesses don’t have the resources to offer full-time internships, but they can find it in their budget to pay a student who creates killer Facebook ads. They want to utilize their local community, and students need experience. Driven-U provides a win-win platform for you to do that.
Experience is the most attractive attribute an employer can seek in a candidate.
Intuit predicts that by 2020, 40% of the job market will be made up of the ever-expanding gig-economy. Employers aren’t looking for a piece of paper verifying you went to class for 4 years, they want applicable experience!
Driven-U provides the distinct opportunity to do what you love, in your free time, while building a working-resume that will blow away any employer's expectations. When we say we created this site just for you, we really mean it.
This site was created specifically for University students to utilize. Nothing is more important to us than you.
Here at Driven-U, we believe that you want the best for yourself, we want to help facilitate your dreams. Want to make extra cash utilizing your skills? Don't have the experience you need for your dream job? We would love to help.
