Selecting the right candidate

Each year, College Pro receives over 25,000 applications for approximately 700 entrepreneurial positions in the U.S. and Canada. We only select and train candidates who are interested in making a serious commitment to work hard and run their own successful summer business.

Once shortlisted, we’ll take you through an extensive selection process which includes info sessions, phone calls, interviews and assessments. We want to learn all about you and your plans for the future, and you will get the opportunity to ask us some questions about who we are, too. In fact, we encourage our candidates to get as much information as possible before and during the selection process, either by asking us directly, inquiring with past entrepreneurs, or any other sources.
