Pentacle works with small businesses to recruit and train interns that fit their interests and administrative needs. Pentacle handles the entire intern recruitment and hiring process: conducting interviews, handling all contract logistics, confirming interns’ projects, and outlining goals for the program session. Pentacle guides both interns and companies throughout the program period to ensure a positive and educational experience for all. In addition, interns receive mentorship from outside professionals, to strengthen their skills and provide them with a network of peers and mentors they can access in their work for their company.
