Website: Internships for seniors

Website: Internships for seniors

Author: Anna-Liisa Palatu

Creation of a website that brings together companies and senior citizens looking to carry out an internship in a field that differs from their previous employment.

The idea focuses on the largest population portion (elderly) of the future decades and their shifting needs towards self actualization.

The product is a website that lets companies advertise their senior internship programs and find the suitable candidates. Compensation for internships is paid to candidates via the platform (following freelancing portals’ model). A comission based business model is used.
