Company Summary

Canal connects the top students with the best companies for paid, short-term and project-based internships. As traditional internships are becoming increasingly scrutinized for not just compensation but also quality, we enter the market with a platform that interviews both parties for competency and automizes the selection process to save time and money on hiring. As we are a selective platform, we look for only the best from both sides.
